Three Ramas are cited in Indian traditions - Balarama, Parashurama and Ramachandra - but it is this latter name that is associated with Sri Ram, or the seventh avatar of Vishnu. The stated purpose of this avatar was to show humans the righteous path in life. Sri Ram is known as the perfect man, representing courage, moral righteousness, kindness and chivalry.
In yogic meditation, the yogi can invoke the qualities of this divine couple by chanting the Sita Ram mantra. Sri Ram symbolizes the inner fervor in the manipura (solar plexus) chakra that purifies the body and spirit, while Sita symbolizes the energy of the muladhara (root) chakra that provides grounding and calms the mind. Both sides of the brain are believed to be balanced through the practice of reciting the Sita Ram mantra.
