1) Tāladhvaja (तालध्वज).—The phantom husband of Nārada. Once Nārada became a woman and a king called Tāladhvaja married her (Devī Purāṇa). It was to show how the mind is covered with illusion that Mahāviṣṇu made Nārada into a woman.

Once Nārada went to Mahāviṣṇu and asked him about the secret of life. Mahāviṣṇu said that there was nothing called life and life exists because of Māyā the illusion of the mind. Nārada insisted that he should see 'Māyā' (illusion) and so Viṣṇu started from Vaikuṇṭha with Nārada on the back of Garuḍa.
