Literally the sanskrit word for sandalwood. The essence although is not as simple and can be understood by the context in which Lotus is referred to by the spiritual Gurus. Irrespective of the number of poisonous snakes that always dwell on Chandan, its nature continues to stay divine, unaffected by its company and thus revered by the Gods to such an extent that they put it on the forehead instead of the feet.The lotus too at the most is either in the feet or the seat of the Gods or is held by the Goddesses in their hands. The simple minded Gods too were not capable to understand the original nature of chandan leave alone the simple minded humans untill the Supreme lord 'Shiv' (who has a reputation of not caring about a lot of other things that other Gods would not turn down)came forth and gave chandan the honour of His Forehead.
There are no examples of chandan.
