@NAMRATA I AGREE WITH YOU...
 
DIFFERENT VERSIONS ARE EXISTING TODAY...
 
MODIFICATIONS WERE MADE...I GUESS...ACCORDING TO THEIR TIMES...SOCIAL CONDITIONS ETC.
 
BUT I THINK THE RAMAYAN WHICH OCCURED...IN REALITY...WAS FOR THE HUMANITY...
 
THOUGH STARTING FROM SCHOLARLY VERSIONS TO TRIBAL VERSIONS HAVE MANY OTHER STORIES THEY SHOLDN'T BE MIXED WITH THE ORIGINAL TEXT...
 
THEY MAY HAVE SOME MORAL AT THE END...BUT TAMPERING ORIGINAL SCRIPTURES IS NOT GOOD...SINCE LORD RAM IS NOT A MYTH HE IS THE TRUTH AND EXISTED IN REALITY...RAMAYAN HAPPENED TRUELY...
 
WE SHOULD HAVE RESPECT ON HIM AND HIS LEGEND...
 
NOT ONLY RAM ANY OTHER HUMAN DEITY...
 
PITY ON OURSELVES THAT WE SOMETIMES INSTEAD OF MODIFYING OURSELVES ACCORDING TO THE BASE...RAMAYAN(IT IS SAID JEEVAN KA AADHAR) WE ARE MODIFYING THE VERSION ACCORDING TO US...

Actually, much of the variance in the many versions in the Ramayan is because it was not written but rather passed down orally by brahmins and story telling bards (kathaks or kathakars). Naturally modifications occurred along the way, just like a game of telephone.  Some folks deliberately enhanced scenes for added dramatic flair, while others still may have tempered the story to suit their own taste.  Moreover, regional cultural variations ocurred as the story spread from one end of the Subcontinent to the other, and then eventually to South East Asia.

There is a scholarly compendium called Many Ramayanas which I read many years ago which is available to read for free online. I suggest you take a look at it: http://publishing.cdlib.org/ucpressebooks/view?docId=ft3j49n8h7&brand=ucpress

yes I agree with you...but along with those you mentioned(I feel all of them as exact reasonsSmile)deliberate alterations were also made I guess according to their sentiments...though some of them are not recorded they pass on as some coommonly used sayings...
 
I will refer to the compendium...thanks for providing the link!Embarrassed

No, it is not. Not all shiva lingas can be termed as Jyotirlings. And as far as the translation of the terms go, I think I know my Sanskrit. 

u can find many vulgar verses in purans.

Depends from which perspective you are looking at. 


geeta press does not publishes full version of some purans just becoz of these vulgar verses.

Can you give a example?

jains n budhist r idol worshippers.muslim worship a black stone in kaba which was a shiv temple earlier.


agni is the first word of rigveda. the sanskrit word agni does not only means fire. it also means one who enlightens.

There are many ways to interpret Sanskrit words- etymologically, phonetically, contextually...I did not mention anything about the meaning of agni. All I said was that If Lord Rama had to worship Shiva or Durga (which you contested, saying that it would not have been possible since there was no idol worship then) , he could have done it by lighting the sacred fire.
