The symbolism of the Tree of Life pendant is rooted in religious tradition and in folk culture.
Worldwide, trees have thus acquired a special, sacred or ritual significance.
Trees symbolize the life from birth to death through their steady growth, from beginning to end, from earth to heaven.
With their shape, the above-ground branches and the underground roots, they cover the entire universe in Norse mythology. The ash Yggdrasil is connected to the world of the gods, the world of people and the underworld. Such a tree is called a tree of life.
The tree is in the first instance a perfect symbol for life itself. With his roots in the earth he has contact with the underworld. With his branches he reaches to heaven. He is a mediator between gods and people.
Furthermore, the tree of life symbolizes eternal life: springing up in spring, lush growth in summer, fruit and fall in autumn and peace in winter.
In the Christian tradition the tree of life symbolizes immortality, the fruits of a tree of life give life.
In the esoteric Kabbalah of the Jews the Sephirot are key symbols. They embody the attributes of the divine. They are fruits that hang in a certain order in the tree of life. The connections between them symbolize the phases of the soul journey to eternity.
Buddha was illuminated under a bodhi tree, the classic symbol of the world axis.
For the Shiite Muslims, the tree that rises above the seven heavens is the symbol of the hakikat, a happy state in which man becomes one with the highest reality.
In Hinduism, God is the source of life, the root of the tree, while tribe and branches symbolize the oldest communities that are close to the spiritual. The leaves are a symbol of humanity.
