Aachaarya Garg was Brahmaa's son and he was appointed as Kul Guru of Vrishni Vansh by Brahmaa Jee himself, that is why he was supposed to do Jaat Karm Sanskaar of Krishn and Balaraam. And that is why Nand Jee invited him to do Sanskaar for Balaraam, because he knew that Balaraam was Vasudev's son but he did not know that Krishn was also Vasudev's son, he just wanted to hide the identity of his son because of His strange activities, so he requested him to do His Sanskaar also. Thus Garg Jee performed the Sanskaar for both of them.
Garg told Shaandilya that Krishn will appear in 28th Chatur-Yug of Varaah Kalp.
This shows that Varaah Kalp and Shwet Varaah kalp are the same because this present Kalp is known as Shwet Varaah Kalp.
According to Maarkandeya Puraan, Sage Garg advised Kaartveerya Arjun to worship Dattaatreya as he wanted to be a Yogee before becoming the King after his father's death.
He has written Jyotish Vigyaan (astrology) also.
