Sankrithi is the Grandson of Sage Vashishta, and the son of Śakti Maharṣi. Incidentally, Śakti Maharṣi is the father of Sage Parashara (the father of Sage Veda Vyasa.)

There is not much known about Sage Sankrithi except that his name figures in the Avadhuta Upanishad, where Lord Dattatreya explains the nature of an Avadhuta to Sage Sankrithi.
