Unselfish performance of work is better than its renunciation – Bhagavad Gita

Arjuna says to Krishna: You praise both the renunciation of work as well as its unselfish performance — so which is better?
Krishna’s answer is that the renunciation of work and its unselfish performance both lead to the soul’s salvation. But of the two, the unselfish performance of work is better than its renunciation.

The reason? Action is better than inaction; even the maintenance of one’s physical life cannot be performed without action and the true worker is also the true renouncer for he does his work in a detached spirit.
