Madhyandina Shakha is a shakha (branch) of Shukla Yajurveda. This branch includes Madhyandina Samhita, Madhyandina Shatapatha Brahmana, Ishavasya Upanishad and Brihadaranyaka Upanishad. Recitation of this Shakha is prevalent over most of North India, Maharashtra and among Veda pandits of Gujarat.
North Indian Veda Pandits recite it in a different way compared to those from Maharashtra. The former pronounce the syllable ष (ṣa) as ख (kha).
A large number of Shukla Yajur Vedic Mandyandina Shaka Brahmins are residing in Nashik, Maharashtra. An association has also been formed with 3000 members on its roll.
And a large number reside in Nepal.
