In the Indian religious and philosophical traditions, all knowledge is traced back to the Gods and to the Rishis who saw the vedas. Thus, the advaita guru-parampar? (Lineage of Gurus in Non-dualism) begins with the Daiva-parampar?, followed by the ??i-parampar?, which includes the vedic seers Va?i??ha, his son ?akti, his son Par??ara, his son Vy?sa, (the famous redactor of the vedas, he is also traditionally identified with B?dar?ya?a, the composer of the Brahmas?tras), and Vy?sa's son ?uka. After ?uka, we turn to the M?nava-parampar?, which brings us to historical times and personalities. - Wiki
