The Seven Principles constituting man are variously named by the Esoteric Buddhism, by the Vedantic scheme, and by other philosophies, but they correspond in idea. First from above come
 
Atma, a ray from the Absolute;
Buddhi, spiritual soul; and
Manas, human soul;
 
these are the superior triad, which separates at human death from the lower tetrad of principles. The lower four are Kama Rupa, the passions; Linga Sarira, the astral body; Prana, life essence; and Sthula Sarira, the lower body; see the dogmas of Esoteric Buddhism. http://supertarot.co.uk/westcott/chap11.htm
