Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 3 verse 26: Let not the wise create a division in the minds of the unwise who are attached to action. Steadfast in the practice of karma yoga he should inspire others to do likewise.

...continued from 3.25.

Don't confuse the unwise with descriptions of either activity separate from Self (3.04) or Divine action on the level of Brahma the Creator (3.15, 3.24). Rather, set an example of selfless actions: perform natural duty by practicing karma yoga (3.19). Naturally, the unwise will follow. 'Whatever a great man does, so do the rest' (3.21).
