Chandogya Upanishad

The Chāndogyopaniṣad is a Sanskrit text embedded in the Chandogya Brahmana of the Sama Veda of Hinduism. It is one of the oldest Upanishads and lists as number 9 in the Muktika canon of 108 Upanishads. The Chandogya Upanishad  is variously uncertain dated to have been composed by the 8th to 6th century BCE in India.

The Upanishad belongs to the Tandya school of the Samaveda. It is an anthology of texts that must have pre-existed as separate texts, and were edited into a larger text by one or more ancient Indian scholars.
