Slow and steady wins the race! Only $12,000 $5,221 more is needed to keep alive and vibrant for the next six months. A big THANK YOU to those who've contributed to our Fall Fundraiser so far. If everyone gave a few dollars (say, between five and fifty) we could get rid of this banner and go back to doing what we love most: helping people all over the Internet discover Krishna. If you give $25 or more, we'll email you a gift of the Bhagavad-gita audio book. How about that? Click here to donate.

Vyasa (also called Krishna Dvaipayana, Badarayana, and Vedavyasa) is the son of Mahamuni Parashara and is a disciple of Narada. He was the guru of the Pandavas and the Kauravas. According to the Vayu Purana, this Vyasa is the twenty-eighth incarnation of Vyasa, and he resides in Uttara Badri, a transcendental abode in the Himalayas, accompanied by Madhvacharya and many other great saintly devotees. Vyasadeva is known as the literary incarnation of Lord Krishna because he imparted the Vedic wisdom to the world by compiling the Vedas, the Puranas (of which Srimad-Bhagavatam is the foremost), the epic Mahabharata, and the Vedanta-sutra.
