Dvāpare samanuprāpte tṛtīye yuga-paryaye
Jātaḥ parāśarād yogī vāsavyāṁ kalayā hareḥ
When Dwarpara Yuga, the third eon, was coming to an end the great Maharishi Vyasa was born to Maharishi Parasara from the womb of Satyavati, daughter of Vasu. This Maharishi Vyasa was a partial incarnation of Maha Vishnu in Him and He was an exalted Jnani by birth.
