"Actually there is no difference in hearing directly from Krsna or from hearing directly from Krsna via a bona fide spiritual master like Vyasa. The spiritual master is the representative of Vyasadeva also. According to the Vedic system, on the birthday of the spiritual master, the disciples conduct the ceremony called Vyasa-puja."
(Bhagavad-gita As It Is, 18.76, Purport)
