Maharishi Veda Vyasa is one of the most revered saints in Hinduism. He was born in Kalpi to Parasara Rishi and Matsyakanya-Satyavathi Devi as Krishna Dvaipayan in Dvapara Yuga. His contributions to Hinduism(Sanatan Dharma) are immense, particularly to the scriptures of the faith. Veda Vyasa not only authored the Mahabharat but also transcribed the Vedas which have existed in the sound form from eternity. The Vedas were transmitted orally from generation to generation. People understood the significance and impact of sound, so they refused to write it down. But Maharishi Veda Vyasa realized that in the Kaliyug this knowledge will be lost and so he decided to write them down as the Rig Veda, Atharva Veda, Sama Veda and Yajur Veda. These four Vedas are considered to be among the greatest documents that humanity has ever created. He also compiled the Brahmasutras and contributed to the current form of the major Puranas. He is considered a Chiranjeevi, an immortal being.
