Film Review: Water: A Repudiation of Manu

Srila Prabhupada several times authorized remarriage for women that lost their husbands for various reasons. There are serious issues regarding the
purity of certain Sanskrit texts. For example, the six Goswamis at times quote, in their books, verses from Puranas, Samhitas etc, and we no longer
find those verses in the texts today. So even in the last few hundred years, those texts have been corrupted.

Similarly, Sripada Madhvacarya wrote a book on the Mahabharata, the Mahabharata-tatparya-nirnaya, in which he explains that the Sanskrit text of
the Mahabharata, available to him almost a millenium ago, is full of text corruptions: interpolations, extrapolations, and transpositions of texts.

Fortunately, our important scriptures: Bhagavad-gita, Srimad-bhagavatam, and Caitanya-Caritamrta, are pure and intact. But texts such as Manu-samhita
may not be so.

Ultimately, we have the great commandment:

smartavyah satatam visnur vismartavyo na jatucit
sarve vidhi-nisehah syuh etayor eva kinkarah

“Always remember Krishna! Never forget Krishna!

All injunctions and prohibitions are servants of these two.”

Srila Prabhupada perfectly demonstrated this pure understanding in his practical dealings, such as remarrying certain women who lost husbands.
