The Ramnamis are a community who are devotees of Ram naam (the name Ram). For them chanting the name Ram is the sole means of worship, devotion and salvation. They are  followers not of Ram  the son of Dashrath , but the Universal  Being inherent in Ram naam. Their living environment is  with Ram naam- from their clothes, homes, bodies, they are rapt in the name Ram.
