The Vedas and other scriptures such as Upanishads and Gita are not only for the action oriented but addresses and provide guidance for people of all tempermants, the extroverts and the introverts. It provides both pravRtti and nivRtti margs and clearly explains pravRtti is for the starters but the goal is nivRtti .

One of the important goals of veda is: to provide
with jnAna and vijnAna to the action oriented,
dominated section of society.

To use jnAna to instill nivRtti at a time when action,
pravRtti are needed is to lead a person against the
path of
the vedas. Whether one uses scriptures that claim
reality as "shUnya", or "brahma", to bring about this
is irrelevant (in my opinion).

arjuna to giveup war and take up samnyAsa ....)
