Paraasarar was the grandson of Sage Vasishtar, (one of the Saptarishis). 

He was a wandering maharishi who had given up all worldly pleasures. 

As he was travelling in Satyawathi's boat, he realised through divine vision that the time was right to bring forth a great soul into this world and that a child conceived at that time, would be an amsam of Lord Vishnu. Sage Vyaasar was thus born through the union of Parasarar and Sathyawathi. 

Sage Vyaasa was brought up by his father Parasarar who passed on all his knowledge to his son.
