Bagua

Basic structure of the three layers of heaven. Bagua is the first two
layers of heaven, and Taiji is the third layer.

Bagua (also Pa Kua) is heaven, the abode of God, described in Revelation 21:1. Heaven is made up of three layers; the first two layers constitute the Bagua, the third layer is the Taiji. The term ‘Heaven’ was derived from “Fu Xi” Bagua (Earlier Heaven) and “King Wen” Bagua (Later Heaven).
Bagua: Heaven
“Fu Xi”: Earlier
“Fu Xi” Bagua: Earlier Heaven
“King Wen”: Later
“King Wen” Bagua: Later Heaven
“Fu Xi” Bagua is the old heaven or the first layer of heaven, and “King Wen” Bagua is the New Heaven or the second layer of heaven.
John of Patmos described a vision of the first two layers of heaven as follows,
I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. (Revelation 21:1) “NKJV”
New Heaven: manifested later heaven, “King Wen” Bagua, and the second layer of heaven.
The First Heaven: primordial earlier heaven, “Fu Xi” Bagua, and the first layer of heaven.
Taiji, the third layer of heaven, is the holy city (the New Jerusalem) described in Revelation 21:2. John described the vision of the third layer of heaven as follows,
I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. (Revelation 21:2) “NKJV”
The Apostle Paul testified that there are three heavens:
I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven.  (2 Corinthians 12:2) “NIV”
The third heaven, the holy city, is the square described as follows,
The city is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth. (Revelation 21:16) “NKJV”
Since the third layer of heaven is a square, the first and second layers of heaven are squares.

The reality is that there are no three different squares. They are the same square in three different locations. The second heaven is the first heaven forty five degrees from its initial position. The two heavens are heaven: the Bagua.

Since a square is made up of four equal sides, the Bagua (the two squares) is made up of eight sides. The eight sides of the Bagua are the sum of the four sides of the first square (the first heaven) and the four sides of the second square (the second heaven).

The Bagua, the sum of the new heaven and the old heaven, is an Octagon.

Mandala

Mandala is a two dimensional representation of the axis mundi: the junction between the physical and the metaphysical. The physical is man or the earth, the metaphysical is God or heaven (sky), and Mandala is where God and man or heaven (sky) and earth are reconciled.

The universe is the sum of heaven and earth.

Universe = Heaven (Sky) + Earth

A mandala (emphasis on first syllable; Sanskrit मण्डल, maṇḍala – literally "circle") is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the universe(Wikipedia)
We learnt from the Taiji that the axis mundi represents balance or stability. Therefore the universe of the axis mundi is the orderly universe known as the cosmos, which means that Mandala is a two-dimensional representation of the cosmos.

"mandala" has become a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe. (Wikipedia)
Mandala is simply a square and …

Holy of Holies

The Holy of Holies or the Most Holy Place is the Axis Mundi in the form of a brilliant or glowing transparent glass cube described as the holy city, the great city, the holy Jerusalem, the new Jerusalem, and the bride (the wife of the Lamb).

“Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.”      (Revelation 21:9) "NIV"
A cube is made up of six square facets, eight vertices and twelve edges. The eight vertices constitute space, the twelve edges constitute time, and the six square facets (or faces) constitute space-time where the three hands of time are reconciled to three dimensional space.

8 Vertices = Space

12 Edges = Time

6 Sides = Space-time

Space (the 8 vertices) is a compass and time (the 12 edges) is a clock, such that the cube (the Holy of Holies) is a compass clock.

The compass is the geographical axis, the clock is the celestial axis, and the cube is the Axis Mundi (the center of the world) where the celestial axis and the geographical axis are connected or u…

The Covenant Box

The Covenant Box (also Ark of the Covenant or Ark of the Testimony) is the square enclosing the circle and the eight-pointed star of the Mandala crested on the floor of the cavern under the Pierced Stone (the Foundation Stone) inside the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

Recall that Jesus is the Ish-Man, made up of body and Spirit. The body is the Lamb and the Spirit is God. For instructional purpose, the Lamb is the Pierced Stone at the center of Dome of the Rock.
“People will look at him whom they pierced.” (John 19:37) "GNT"
 Then they will look on Me whom they pierced. (Zechariah 12:10) "NKJV"
The Lamb was pierced on the side as follows:
one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear (John 19:34) "NKJV"
The small hole on the southeastern corner of the Pierced Stone is the injury sustained by Lamb when they pierced him. The foundation stone is called the Pierced Stone because of the injury sustained by Jesus. In other words, Jesus is the rock at the center …
