Garuda Purana tells that Vishnu will born to kill an asura. Vishnu takes the form of an eunuch

The gods would be divided into different clans such as the Svadharmans, Sutapasas, Haritas, Rohitas, etc., and Rtadhama or Bhadra would be their Indra or overlord. The demon Taraka would invade the territories of the then lord of the celestials. O Sankara, the god Hari, incarnate as a eunuch, would destroy that fell perace-breaker of the universe.

[53, Chapter 87: Fourteen Manus, Garuda Puranam]

Do any scripture tells the name of the avatar mentioned?

  • The passage says the eunuch avatara will take place when the demon Taraka invades. Is demon Taraka the same as Tarakasura?

  • I'm thinking as the same. But not sure. @Rickross
