One cannot ascertain his duty in all circumstances simply by referring to the rules and regulations of shastra.
One has to be very intelligent, wise, and possess a mature understanding of the subtleties of virtue, for sometimes so-called morality becomes immorality, and vice-versa.
Of course, persons who altogether disregard shastra or find fault with it are no better than Rakshasas.
Still, above and beyond knowledge of shastra, one must understand how it is to be practically applied.
