You are mistaken - 'raam' isn't a bija mantra in the tantric tradition
- it's the name of a deified hero of Ayodha. The word 'ram' is used as
a mantra by courtesy only. According to Swami Bhaktivedanta, the
'mantra' 'ram' is to be repeated on a daily basis, based on the
teachings of Chaitanya. Bija mantras are not found in standard
Sanskrit lexicons.
