Veda Vyasa classified the Vedas into four divisions and preached it to four different people who were also referred to as the pravartakas. Let us know who they are:
- The Rig Veda was preached to Paila.
- The Yajur Veda was actually preached to two people: kRiShNa Yajur Veda to Vaishampayana and shukla Yajur Veda to Soorya.
- The Saama Veda was preached to Jaimini.
- The Atharva Veda was preached to Sumantu.
If anybody has additional information on this please let me know.
