भागवत - अनृतं जुगुप्स्तितम्

स्त्रीषु नर्मविवाहे च वृत्त्यर्थे प्राणसंकटे ।
गोब्राह्मणार्थे हिंसयां नानृतं स्याज्जुगुप्सितम् ॥

- भागवत

It is not a sin to lie under these circumstances - when talking to a woman, during a wedding, in your occupation, facing danger to your life, to protect a brahmin who accepts donation of a cow, to escape from violence.

- Bhagavata
