Ram as the symbolic of inner fire resides in Manipur chakra or solar plexus which burns away all the physical, mental, and spiritual impurities. While Sita as kundalini Shakti resides in Mooladhar or root chakra representing the earth element.
The Ram mantra ignite the internal fire that burns our all impurities and bad karma, while the Sita mantra activates the flow of prana in Sushumna Nadi, causing the upward movement of the Kundalini Shakti.
