Story – This is why Rishi Vyasa is called Krishna and Dwaipayan

Vyasa appears for the first time as the compiler of, and an important character in, the Mahabharata. It is said that he was the expansion of the god Vishnu who came in Dwaparayuga to make all the Vedic knowledge available in written form which was available in spoken form at that time. He was the son of Satyavati, daughter of the fisherman Dusharaj, and the wandering sage Parashara. Vyasa was dark-complexioned and hence may be called by the name Krishna, and also the name Dwaipayana, meaning ‘island-born’.
