Gurudev, in the Ramayana, Ravana abducted Devi Sita and in the Mahabharata, Lord Krishna abducted Devi Rukmani when she was being forced to marry Shishupal (an immoral King in the Mahabharata). In the Lord’s incarnation as Lord Krishna, Ravana incarnated as Shishupal and Sita incarnated as Devi Rukmani. So is there some connection of karma here as well?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

It is said ‘Gahano karmano-gatih’ (unfathomable are the ways of Karma). So the ways and the pace of Karma are mysterious and unfathomable. No one can understand it.
