Yggdrasil in da germanischn Mithologie da Nam vo ana Eschn, de wos ois Wejdnbaam an gsamtn Kosmos vakeapad hod. Andare Nam vonam Baam worn woi. Beispiele:  „Yggdrasil hat drei große Wurzeln, von denen eine nach Jötunheim, dem Land der Riesen, wächst, wo sich auch Mimirs Brunnen befindet.“. Okt. Es gibt eine Weltenesche, sie ist der Mittelpunkt aller Sphären im Kosmos. So steht es in der Edda geschrieben. Ihr Name ist Yggdrasil.
Detter, is that the name Yggdrasill refers to the word yggr "terror" , yet not in reference to the Odinic name, and so Yggdrasill would then mean "tree of terror, gallows".
An ash I know there stands, Yggdrasill is its name, a tall tree, showered with shining loam. From there come the dews that drop in the valleys.
Yggdrasill shivers, the ash, as it stands. The old tree groans, and the giant slips free. I know that I hung on a windy tree nine long nights, wounded with a spear, dedicated to Odin, myself to myself, on that tree of which no man knows from where its roots run.
In the stanza that follows, Odin describes how he had no food nor drink there, that he peered downward, and that "I took up the runes, screaming I took them, then I fell back from there.
In stanza 31, Odin says that the ash Yggdrasil has three roots that grow in three directions. Within the list, Odin mentions Yggdrasil first, and states that it is the "noblest of trees".
In Gylfaginning , Yggdrasil is introduced in chapter In chapter 15, Gangleri described as king Gylfi in disguise asks where is the chief or holiest place of the gods.
High replies "It is the ash Yggdrasil. There the gods must hold their courts each day". Gangleri asks what there is to tell about Yggdrasil.
Just-As-High says that Yggdrasil is the biggest and best of all trees, that its branches extend out over all of the world and reach out over the sky.
Three of the roots of the tree support it, and these three roots also extend extremely far: In chapter 16, Gangleri asks "what other particularly notable things are there to tell about the ash?
High continues that an eagle sits on the branches of Yggdrasil and that it has much knowledge. In chapter 64, names for kings and dukes are given.
Hilda Ellis Davidson comments that the existence of nine worlds around Yggdrasil is mentioned more than once in Old Norse sources, but the identity of the worlds is never stated outright, though it can be deduced from various sources.
Davidson comments that "no doubt the identity of the nine varied from time to time as the emphasis changed or new imagery arrived".
Stanza 27 is more obscure, with the first two lines of the verse indicating a connection with Heimdall:. Scholars including John Lindow  and Carolyne Larrington  have suggested that Heimdall may have sacrificed one of his ears in return for his heightened power of hearing according to Gylfaginning he can hear grass growing on the earth or wool on the backs of sheep , depositing it in the well in much the same manner that Odin pledged an eye to the Well of Mimir in return for knowledge and wisdom.
Although we are not specifically told if the tree survives the fiery conflagration of Surtr , the rebirth of the world and a new generation of gods and men are positive indications.
He suffers the pain and hardship of this transcendent consciousness for nine nights, in order to acquire knowledge of the runes. To contemplate the entirety of all worlds and transcend them to peer out across the infinite nothingness of Ginnungagap, awakens existential power.
According to stanzas 25 and 26, the goat Heidrun stands atop the roof of Valhalla and feeds from the leaves and branches of the tree. From her udder flows an endless supply of mead for the einherjar.
Likewise, the stag Eikthyrnir also feeds from the tree atop the roof of the hall, and from his antlers water drips into the wellspring Hvergelmir , located in Niflheim and from which all rivers flow.
In both stanzas the tree is called Laerad but is often identified with the World Tree. Both share similar locations relative to the hall of Odin , both are associated with animals who derive nourishment from its foliage , and Hvergelmir as well shares a connection with both trees.
Stanzas 29 to 35 provide further details. Each day the gods ride to Yggdrasil to hold court and pronounce judgments. The three roots of the tree grow in three separate directions, the first into Hel , the second among the frost giants whose realm is not named but presumably is Jotunheim , and the third among humans or Midgard.
In the Gylfaginning section of the Prose Edda , the third root among mortals is instead placed by Snorri in Asgard among the gods.
