"Vyasa (Devanagari: व्यास, vyāsa) is a central and revered figure in the majority of Hindu traditions. Vyasa is conflated'by Vaishnavas with Badarayana, the author of the Vedanta Sutras. He is also sometimes called Veda Vyasa (वेद व्यास, veda vyāsa), (the one who compiled the Vedas) or Krishna Dvaipayana (referring to his complexion and birthplace). He is considered to be the scribe of both the Vedas, and the supplementary texts such as the Puranas. He is the author of Sri Devi Bhaagavat (Devi-Bhagavata Purana). A number of Vaishnava traditions regard him as an avatar of Vishnu.[1] Vyasa is also considered to be one of the seven Chiranjivins (long lived, or immortals), who are still in existence according to general Hindu belief.
The festival of Guru Purnima, is dedicated to him, and also known as Vyasa Purnima as it is the day, which is believed to his birthday and also the day he divided the Vedas.[2][3]"
