Lord Sri Krishna said:

Therefore, let this scripture be your sole authoritative guide to determine what actions should be performed, and what actions should be avoided. Having known what is stated in the scriptures; one should then act and perform one’s work in the world. (Book: Word of God Bhagavad Gita: Chapter 16 verse 24)
