Many Ved Vyasas Contradiction?

In Hinduism on November 19, 2013 at 08:42

Though we know Vyasa as the one who gave us the Vedas and The Puranas, there are different Vyasas for different Manvantaras(for Manvantara Details read my post ).

Veda means Prose.

Veda Vyasa means ‘ one who has formed the Vedas into different parts.

In the Vaivasvatha Manvanthara Vedas were formed into divisions twenty eight times.

In the first Dwapara, Lord Brahma divided the Vedas and became the First Vyasa.(Vyasa, according to the Vishnu Purana, is indicative of a position).

The Next Vyasas are.

Manu,

Sukrachariar, Asura Guru,

Bruhaspathi, Deva Guru,

Surya,The Sun God,

Yama, The Lord of Deth,

Indra, the chief of Heaven,

Vasishta,

Saaraswata,

Dhrudhaama,

Thrvrushar,

Bharadwajar,

Antharikshrar,

Dharmi,

Thryaaruni,

Dhananjaya,(Arjuna?)

Kruthanjayan,

Sanjaya(?)

In the next six Dwaparas,the Vyasa are,

Bharatwajar(again, possible  this is also an indicative name)

Gauthama,

Uthama,

Vena,

Somashushmayanar,

Rushar,

Sakthi,

Parasara,

Jathakarana,

Krishnadwaipayana, for the present-Dweedeeya Paraartham,Swetha Varaaha Kalpam,Vaivastha Manvantham,,Kaliyuga,Prathamapdaham.

We are now in the Seventh Manvantara,Vaivastha Manvantara.

This list is according to Sri Vishnu Purana.

Brahmanda Pura’s list of Vyasas differ.

Lord Siva is reported to have divulged the list of Vyasas to Lord Brahma.

The list.

Swetha,

Sathya,

Sathara,

Angrira,

Savitha,

Mruthyu,

Sathakruthu,

Vasishta,

Saraswatha,

Tridhama,

Thrivrata,

Vithatheja,

Dharma Narayana,

Sura Rakshana,

Aruni,

Yosajna,

Krithanjaya,

Rithanjaya,

Bharatwaja,

Vachasrava,

Vachaspati,

Huklayana,

Thrinavindu,

Riksha,

Kshagiri,

Parasara,

Jathukarma,

Krishna Dwaipayana.

However a close look at the list will reveal that these Vyasas are not diferent from the Vishnu Purana list because the names here, as in all Hinduism, are indicative of positions, attributes that may be different.

For example, Mruthyu for Yama,Savitha for Surya,Sura Rakshana for Indra….

In essence the list tallies.
