It is not avatara, if you are in that impression. He is a jiva, mukta, now
taken a body, and after the expiry of the prArabdha karma will be finally
liberated. He will not have kartrutva / bhoktrutva bhaava then.
For that matter, all jivas, when punarjanma is there, in avidyAvasthA, are
said to be incarnating every time. That is why they say 'Hinduism believes
in re-incarnation.' Vyasa's case is no different in as much as another
body is taken and lived out. The only difference is that in this case
avidya / ajnana is not the cause of the new incarnation; it is the command
