Joy NITAI , JOY Nitaipreshthji , Joy Guru parampara

A Brahmana is a topmost position in the society and considered as a true teacher , a guide to rest all classes. Therefore he can’t lie in any situations to them while telling the Absolute truth. When we call our Lord as a Supreme Truth / Absolute truth then how come there will be any space for lies ?

Even Srila Prabhupada specified to leave your existing varna if required and accept the lower varna to live the honest life then how come a brahmana can lie ?

Even a Khatriya too is not allowed to lie and following is the extract from Mahabharata where Acharya Donacharya is teaching the pandavas and kauravas to always speak truth and never lie, then how come a brahmana can lie ?

Once in the gurukul of Dronacharya, there was a lesson being taught on speaking truth. Guru Drona said to all Kauravas and Pandavas, “Always speak the truth. Never tell a lie.” Then he started asking each student to explain what they learned. Everybody said more or less the same thing on their turn except prince Yudhisthira. But Yudhisthira said, “I am sorry respected guru! I have not yet learned the lesson.” Everybody became surprised to hear the answer of Yudhisthira, as he was a very intelligent student and how is it that he could not memorize this simple statement!!. Guru Drona replied, “No problems dear, you take your time learning the lesson and tell me tomorrow.” Everybody started discussing, “What happened to Yudhisthira!! He is such a bright and intelligent student. He learns lessons very easily, but could not just memorize and speak out one simple sentence today.” Prince Duryodhana made a mockery of him and said, “Today, the truth of Yudhisthira is exposed that he could not learn even simplest of the lessons!!”

The next day, Guru Drona again asked Yudhisthira, “Dear Yudhisthira! Did you learn the lesson that I taught you regarding the truth?” Yudhisthira replied, “I am sorry, but I have not learned it today too.” This continued for one whole week. Everybody was puzzled seeing the prince unable to learn a simple lesson. After one week, when Guru Drona asked the same question, Yudhisthira replied, “Respected Guru! I have now learned the lesson. The lesson is always speak the truth. Never tell a lie.” Hearing the answer, Duryodhana started making fun of Yudhisthira and said, “Brilliant answer prince Yudhisthira. Finally you learned this simple sentence after one week.” Yudhisthira replied, “Yes my dear younger brother. It took me one week to completely get out of the clutches of lies. For always speaking the truth, even a single thought of telling a lie should not come in my mind. First day, my mind was surrounded with many lies. Next day, the number of lies reduced. I kept on trying for one week and from yesterday, not a single lie has come in my mind. Now I have learned the lesson and will follow it in my life – ‘Always speak the truth. Never tell a lie.’”

Finally when Narottam Das Thakur has said “ Nitaiyer Carana Satya “ then how come we can offer Asatya(lies) at the lotus feet of NITAI ?
