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.

Get a chandan mug for your mama Yasemin.
An indian name, usually for a guy (unlike the other definitions). He will be the nicest friend ever! he can listen to all your problems and he's the funnest person in the world. Legitimate friend.

He is also obsessed with batman, and parkour. He has similar/great taste in music as you (THE STROKES FTW).

Unlike the other definitions, chandan is a cool person. If you ever meet a chandan, try to be his best friend ASAP.
Me: Hey have you ever met Chandan?

Rachel: Yeah, man, he's the coolest person ever!

Me: He can do flips off the walls!

Rachel: I should date him!

Get a chandan mug for your dog Jerry.
Usually an ugly indian or pakistani female that pretends to act in a formal way to impress guys and laughs for no reason. A chandan usually annoys her siblings friends and walks around the house usually looking for food.
A chandan is something you'd never want in your pants.
