Vyasa

Vyasa granting divine vision to [[Sanjaya]], on his son, [[Dhritarashtra]]'s request in the [[Mahabharata]] Vyasa (; , literally "Compiler") is the author of the ''Mahabharata'', Vedas and Puranas, some of the most important works in the Hindu tradition. He is also called Veda Vyāsa (वेदव्यासः, ''veda-vyāsaḥ'', "the one who classified the Vedas") or Krishna Dvaipāyana (referring to his dark complexion and birthplace).

The festival of Guru Purnima is dedicated to him. It is also known as ''Vyasa Purnima'', the day believed to be both of his birth and when he divided the Vedas. Vyasa is considered one of the seven Chiranjivis (long-lived, or immortals), who are still in existence according to Hindu tradition. Provided by Wikipedia
