Veda Vyasa means ‘ one who has formed the Vedas into different parts.
In the Vaivasvatha Manvanthara Vedas were formed into divisions twenty eight times.
The Next Vyasas are.
Sukrachariar, Asura Guru,
Bruhaspathi, Deva Guru,
Surya,The Sun God,
Yama, The Lord of Deth,
Indra, the chief of Heaven,
In the next six Dwaparas,the Vyasa are,
Bharatwajar(again, possible this is also an indicative name)
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.
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.
