Chandogya is one of my favourite upanishads

This is the upanishad that we featured at our annual retreat this year. My daughter and two granddaughters helped to dramatise it on the Saturday evening. It’s one of my favourites. It begins with these words: “Brahman is all. From Brahman come appearances, sensations, desires, deeds. But all these are merely name and form. To know Brahman one must experience the identity between him and the Self, or Brahman dwelling within the lotus of the heart. Only by so doing can man escape from sorrow and death and become one with the subtle essence beyond all knowledge.”
