The third of the purusha incarnations of Vishnu, the great rishi
Narada Munia. He was the son of Brahma and Saraswati, the goddess of learning, and is described in the Srimad Bhagavatam, thus:
"tritiyam rishi-sargam vai
devarshitvam upetya sah
tantram satvatam acashta
naishkarmyam karmanam yatah
In the millennium of the rishis, the Personality of Godhead
accepted the third empowered incarnation in the form of Devarishi Narada,
who is a great sage among the demigods. He collected expositions of the Vedas which
deal with devotional service and which inspire nonfruitive action."
Bhag., Canto 1, Ch. 3, Text 8
