Dearest Gurudev, where do emotions and prana (life force) fit in the 7 layers of existence, and how do the 7 layers connect to the panchakoshas (the five sheaths)?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Where do you want to fit it (emotions)? Mind is emotions and intellect is thoughts. Love is our very nature, it’s not just an emotion. Devotion is a flavor of love.
Life is complicated. You cannot fit them in some structure. It is only a gentle understanding.
