The Tree of Life in its various forms is recognized in all cultures as a symbol of immortality and eternal life. From ancient Chinese and Egyptian culture to Germanic paganism and Mesoamerica, it has been sought after throughout the ages.
The tree of life (Heb. עץ החיים Etz haChayim) in the Book of Genesis is a tree planted by the Abrahamic God in midst of the Garden of Eden (Paradise), whose fruit gives everlasting life, i.e. immortality. Together with the tree of life, God planted the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (Genesis 2:9). According to some scholars, however, these are in fact two names for the same tree.

Sometimes called the cosmic or world tree, the tree of life did not originate with the authors of Genesis. For thousands of years it has been used in sacred literature to describe man’s connection with the divine. Although different cultures have known this tree by different names, the essence of this tree’s significance is essentially the same; it represents both divine and natural man, the spiritual and natural world. And just as the tree of life symbolically spans all the worlds of existence, so does man.
The tree of life is a mystical and magical tree well known throughout many cultures, dating back to ancient times. Different races and religions call it by different names,each having its own tree of life in their mythologies. They all have similar meanings as the source of life in their respective cultures.
The symbols of the tree of life are comprised of all the aspects of the tree itself and what those elements mean. You have the roots, the trunk, branches, leaves, and all types of fruit coming from the same tree. All of these parts of the tree represent the tree in a symbolic way.
