VEDAVYASA

Parasara was a great rishi. One day he had to cross the Yamuna River. The river was in flood. He saw a fisherman on the river- bank. He asked him, "Will you row me across in your boat?" The fisherman said, :"I will." He called his young daughter. He said to her, "My child, Matsya-gandhi, row this rishi across the river safely."

The rishi got into the boat. He liked the girl. He asked her, "Will you marry me?" The girl said, " I will." Parasara married her.A son was born to them on a dwipa or island. So they called the child Dwaipayana. He had dark skin.Dwaipayana grew to be a very learned rishi.He wrote the eighteen Puranas. You have heard of the MAHA- BHARATA. He wrote that also.
