Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 3 Text 26

na buddhi-bhedam janayed
ajnanam karma-sanginam
josayet sarva-karmani
vidvan yuktah samacaran

na--not; buddhi-bhedam--disruption of intelligence; janayet--he should cause; ajnanam--of the foolish; karma-sanginam--who are attached to fruitive work; josayet--he should dovetail; sarva--all; karmani--work; vidvan--a learned person; yuktah--engaged; samacaran--practicing.


So as not to disrupt the minds of ignorant men attached to the fruitive results of prescribed duties, a learned person should not induce them to stop work. Rather, by working in the spirit of devotion, he should engage them in all sorts of activities [for the gradual development of Krsna consciousness].


Srila Prabhupada states in his purport an ultimate rule of etiquette; Therefore a realized soul in Krsna consciousness should not disturb others in their activities or understanding, but he should act by showing how the results of all work can be dedicated to the service of Krsna.
