In addition to being the consort of Rama, Sita represents the ideal of feminine and spousal virtues. She is known for her courage, dedication and purity. Rama is one of the most important of Vishnu's incarnations, along with Krishna. In some sects, Rama is considered the supreme god, rather than just an avatar. They are considered the perfect man and woman.
Sita Ram, as a mantra, evokes Rama as Truth, the Soul and virtue; and Sita as primal energy (kundalini shakti). Rama symbolizes the inner fervor in the manipura (solar plexus) chakra that purifies the body and spirit. Sita symbolizes the energy of the muladhara (root) chakra that provides grounding and calms the mind. Both sides of the brain are balanced through the practice of reciting the Sita Ram mantra. It is also believed to improve health by removing impurities from the body and mind, and to encourage self-awareness.
