Summary: This is the English translation of the Chandogya Upanishad, an ancient philosophical text originally written in Sanksrit and dating to at least the 8th century BCE. Having eight chapters (adhyayas) and many sub-sections (khandas), this text is counted among the largest of it's kind. The Chandogya Upanishad, being connected to the Samaveda, represents a key foundational work for the Vedanta school of Hinduism. It contains details on the syllable ‘Om’, the nature of Brahman and Atman and the importance of Meditation, among many other philosophical topics.

This edition included the commentary (Bhashya) of Shankara (Shankaracharya). The text used is that published in the Anandasrama Sanskrit Series which is available separately.

Other titles include: Chāndogya Upaniṣad (छान्दोग्य उपनिषद्) Chāndogyopaniṣad (छान्दोग्योपनिषद्, Chandogyopanishad, Chandogyopanisad), Śaṅkara Bhāṣya (शङ्कर भाष्य).
