Bhagwan Ved Vyas
Vyas is Sanatan Dharma’s first and greatest acharya. He classified
the four Vedas, wrote the 18 Purans, the Brahma Sutras, and uttered the
Mahabharat which Shri Ganeshji penned down. The Mahabharat is glorified
as the fifth Veda. Of all Mahabharat’s sections, the most important
and its essence and crown jewel is the Bhagvad Gita. This appears in the
Bhishma Parva, Chapters 23 to 40.
So now we can understand why Vyasji is the greatest acharya. And, in the Vachanamrut, Bhagwan Swaminarayan has declared him as the final authority, as far as the shastras are concerned.
He was born on an island in the holy river Yamuna, on Ashadh Purnima
over 5,000 years ago. His father was Parashar rishi and mother, Satyavati.
After thinking deeply about all the shastras that he wrote, he described
the most important goal of life.
i.e. After repeatedly reflecing on all the shastras, I have drawn one conclusion, that life’s goal is to realize Bhagwan Narayan.
Vyasji and Bhagwan Swaminarayan.
Besides declaring Vyasji as authoritative, Bhagwan Swaminarayan has
praised him in eleven Vachanamruts :
In honor of Ved Vyas as the foremost acharya and guru in Sanatan Dharma, the Guru Purnima festival is celebrated annually on Ashadh Punam. This is also known as Vyas Purnima. On this day, the spiritual guru is offered pujan. In the BAPS sanstha, we do pujan of our guru, His Divine Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj.
