Individual, people, someone : What's the correct word in Tibetan ?

Post by joachimsherabdordje » Tue Oct 30, 2018 8:42 am

Hello,
I'm a french speaking and i remember a conversation, long time ago, with a Tibetan guy that told me the word "individu" (that's mean people for only one guy in french) doesn't exist in Tibetan.
He said that in Tibetan nothing could be separate or individual. So, the word to identify someone was something, i don't remember, but that is mean :
"the flow is transmigrating (or passing)."
Is it true and what is that word in Tibetan and in phonetic ?
If someone could answer i will be grateful :)
Joachim
