The Buddha did not ever, in all the his eons of practice, tell a deliberate lie. The base line for our practice to progress is Truthfulness - it is the very foundation upon which the practice unfolds towards ultimate Truth. Truthfulness also plays an important role in the world - bringing a sense of trust and respect into our lives, if it is present.
