Yggdrasil

Yggdrasil (also Yggdrasill) is the name of the World Tree (the cosmic tree) in Norse Cosmology. Since the World Tree is the Axis Mundi or the Mandala, Yggdrasil is the tree of life (the cosmos).

The Poetic Edda and the Prose Edda described Yggdrasil as follows,

Yggdrasil is an immense tree that is center to the cosmos and considered very holy. The gods go to Yggdrasil daily to assemble at their things (aka "governing assemblies"). (Wikipedia)

The cosmos is a forest summarized into one tree: Yggdrasil. The tree is the man named Jesus.

Jesus says,
I am the vine; you are the branches. (John 15:5) "NIV"

The vine: the tree (Jesus)

The tree: Yggdrasil

The branches: the other trees in the forest

Jesus was the first man to become the tree of life (the Axis Mundi). Therefore others who came later to become trees of life like him are his branches.
That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the Lordthat He may be glorified. (Isaiah 61:3) "NKJV"

Trees of righteousness: others that are like Jesus

Jesus was a royal seed that sprouted and grew into the tree of life. The ten sefirot are the first fruits of the tree of life. Each sefirah (or sefira) was a seed that became a tree, such that the ten sefirot became twelve trees (not ten trees). Each of the twelve trees had its own fruits which sprouted into trees. Those trees have also produced royal seeds that have become trees.

The number of trees of life continues to increase in a geometric proportion as more fruits are produced, more seeds planted, and more seeds sprouting into new trees.
A little one shall become a thousand, And a small one a strong nation. I, the Lord, will hasten it in its time. (Isaiah 60:22) "NKJV"

Jesus (a single tree) is magnified into the immense tree known as Yggdrasil.

"The gods go to Yggdrasil daily to assemble" implies that every human being that enters into the Holy of Holies is a god. He is a god because God dwells in him.

“You are gods, And all of you are children of the Most High. (Psalm 82:6) "NKJV"

Here is a further description of the Yggdrasil:
The branches of Yggdrasil extend far into the heavens, and the tree is supported by three roots that extend far away into other locations; one to the well Urðarbrunnr in the heavens, one to the spring Hvergelmir, and another to the well Mímisbrunnr. (Wikipedia)

The two wells and the spring are the three persons of the Blessed Trinity. The first well is the throne of the Father, the second well is the throne of the Son, and the spring is the Holy Spirit.

Urðarbrunnr (the first well) = Father

Mímisbrunnr (the second well) = Son

Hvergelmir (the spring) = Holy Spirit

The two wells and the spring constitute the baptism described as follows,
Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19) "NIV"

The baptism is the stream (Hvergelmir) flowing from the two wells into the hearts of men. Urðarbrunnr is wisdom, Mímisbrunnr is understanding, and Hvergelmir is the sum of wisdom and understanding. This means that the spring is wisdom and understanding flowing from the wells into the hearts of humans.

The spring is the river of the water of life described as follows,
The angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb (Revelation 22:1) "NIV"

Pure river of water of life: Hvergelmir (the spring)

Clear as Crystal: cleans

God: the Father

The Lamb: the Son

The throne of God: the well Urðarbrunnr

The throne of the Lamb: the well Mímisbrunnr

Proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb: the spring (Hvergelmir) flows out of the well Urðarbrunnr and the well Mímisbrunnr

 The water of life is the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Spirit is the sum of the Father and the Son.

The Holy Spirit in the hearts of men is eternal life. Whoever has wisdom and understanding has the Father and the Son, and eternal life.

This is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. (John 17:3) "NIV"
The only true God: the Father (Wisdom)

Jesus Christ: the Son (understanding)

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 …
