Here's what Chinna Jeeyar says:
Sri Rama never worshiped Lord Shiva, according to Sri Ramayanam. He did not consecrate Rameswaram. This is a made up story. Anything related to Sri Rama, will be accepted if Valmiki Ramayana mentions that.
Our own Tezz has given a citation - not even using the Rameshwaram reference:
वैश्वदेवबलिम् कृत्वा रौद्रम् वैष्णवमेव च |
वास्तुसंशमनीयानि मङ्गळानि प्रवर्तयन् || २-५६-३१
जपम् च न्यायतः कृत्वा स्नात्वा नद्याम् यथाविधि |
पाप संशमनम् रामः चकार बलिम् उत्तमम् || २-५६-३२
Having taken bath in the river as prescribed Rama offered oblations to Lord Rudra (Shiva) and Lord Vishnu after offering tributes to Vaisvadeva. He performed benedictions relating to the purification of house and also a silent prayer as per prescribed rites. He finally offered excellent tributes to the deities, for removing sins.
So why does Jeeyar think Rama never worshiped Shiva (according to Valmiki Ramayana)? Does he offer any reasoning in support of his stated views?
