Lie for God is Justified:
When your aim is God, the false means used to cross the worldly bonds are not at all false. Anything in the direction of God is not at all false. Anything in the direction of the world is not at all true. Ends justify means. A lie told by Krishna to kill Drona became justice. Even truth against the will of God becomes injustice. Shankara wanted to leave His mother for the divine service. He told several times the true spiritual knowledge to His mother. But the mother finally wants Him to stay with her only. Shankara cheated her by telling a lie that a crocodile caught His leg under water and forced her to accept sanyasa as His last wish.
