Explanation: Hello! I wasn't sure if you meant spirit as in A) 'Body and spirit' or B)spirit as in alchohol The first two are A and the last one is B.
Tamashii is literally spirit or soul.
For example 'Yamato Damashii'
(the T changes to a D in this case) would mean 'The spirit of a true Japanese'
Kokoro could be used in a similar context but it also means 'heart'. Ex: kokoro ga kirei He or she has a beautiful heart or spirit.
