In Norse cosmology, Yggdrasil is a giant cosmic tree in the center of the world connecting the nine worlds of the Norse cosmos.

Yggdrasil (also Yggdrasill) is the name of the World Tree, the Axis Mundi, the Mandala, and the tree of life (the cosmos itself).

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)

Qibla Compass

Qibla compass is a compass design showing clearly that Islam is a direction, and Muslims constitute just one out of the many directions of a compass. Some of the other directions of the compass are Sikhism, Gnosticism, Judaism, Hinduism, Christianity, Atheism, Psychology, Philosophy, Jainism, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, Taoism, Baha'i Faith, Babism, Rastafarianism, etc.

Qibla compass is designed specifically to help Muslims locate the direction of Mecca and pray facing the Kaaba. Some designs have the word "Mecca" inscribed as the most prominent direction on the compass; others have the image of the Kaaba or a Mosque signifying the qibla (Muslim direction) on the compass.
Although Judaism doesn't have a compass to show Jews what direction to face during prayers, the fact that Jews all over the world pray toward the Temple Mount is an evidence that Judaism is a direction and the Temple Mount is the qibla of the Jews.
Every religion is a compass - the centre of the comp…

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 …

Spacetime

Space-time (also axis mundi) is the hexagon inside the hexagram where the three hands of time meet with three dimensional space.

In physics,spacetime is any mathematical model that fuses the three dimensions of space and the one dimension of time into a single four-dimensionalcontinuum. 
The hexagram ABCDEF above is the sum of two triangles: ABC and DEF. The three sides of the triangle ABC are the three hands of time, and the triangle DEF is three dimensional s[ace.

The three hands of time are:

HourMinuteSecond The three manifestations of three dimensional space are: LengthBreadthHeight In triangle ABC, Hour = AB, Minute = BC, Second = CA. In triangle DEF, Length = DE, Breadth = EF, Height = FD.
Time is the circle of the sky, and the clock is the physical manifestation of time. Since the clock is made up of hour, minute, and second, triangle ABC is Time (the clock).
The three hands of time are manifestations of the three persons of the Blessed Trinity.
Hour (AB) = Father Minute (BC) = S…
