The pau (Tibetan Shamans) "...maintain that there is only one soul, the nam shé [nam çes]. As a Buddhist concept, the nam shé is consciousness in a very wide sense; it has a number of constituent parts, including the la [bla] and saug [srog], but is not conceived as a soul. Still, because the nam shé is immortal, the pau liken it to the atma (Sanskrit) of Hinduism; that is to say, they see it as a soul. Thus the la and the saug would appear to be soul parts, but this is difficult to state definitively."[1]

The Nam Shé is made up of constituent parts, the la and the saug.
