Nandimukhas is a class of Pitris. There seems to be some uncertainty about the character of the Nandimukhas. They can be addressed both as Pitris and gods. In the form of Pitris, the ancestors prior to the great grandfather, ancestors collectively, or a certain class of them. In the form of gods they are identified with the Viswadevas.
The term Nandimukha is also applied to the rite itself, or to the Vriddhi Sradda, and to one addressed to maternal ancestors.
