Yogapedia explains Om Shri Ramaya Namaha
Within the Om Shri Ramaya namaha mantra, the word, rama, can be considered to denote god and, therefore, be unlimited. It refers to the god himself, as well as to the divine spirit within every being. The two syllables separately, ra and ma, represent the masculine and feminine elements, located in the left and right sides of the body. As such, some yogis believe that the mantra is helpful for bringing masculine and feminine energy within the body into balance.
It is said that a devotee to Lord Rama will receive benefits in all fields of their life by chanting the mantra. The mantra can be chanted quickly several times with each breath or extended over several breaths. This can be done out loud at first, then getting quieter and quieter until it is repeated silently and the mantra is used as a way to enter a meditative state.
