Guru poornima is also known as Vyasa Poornima – Why?

Vyasa Poornima

Vedvyasa – It is said that Vyasa have been born on Guru Poornima day, but also to have started writing the Brahma Sutras on ashadha sudha padyami, which ends on this day. This great sage also wrote Mahabharata. This was the day, when Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa – author of the Mahabharata – was born to sage Parashara and a fisherman’s daughter Satyavati, thus this day is also celebrated as Vyasa Purnima.
