Also, the sequence kind of makes sense: 1. As a woman in India I was enslaved by Persian attackers. (800 years pass) 2. Then I decided that I would not be treated like that again and became a soldier myself. (800 years pass) 3. Then apparently I decided that being ordered around to kill others is pointless and instead I decided to go deeper and become spiritual. (800 years pass) 4. In the current lifetime the focus on which I decided before birth is to experience freedom.
