The intelligent hypocrites

SrilaPrabhupada said that we have, simultaneously want to preach to the intelligentsia, to the scientist, to the philosophers, to the phd’s and so on because if they are convinced, so many others would be convinced, and simultaneously, we want to also, we have our grass root program, where you want all the people in every town and village to take up the chanting everywhere, because in many cases some of the so called intellectuals may not be sincere, they may be hypocrites. So even though you may honestly tell them something, if they themselves aren’t sincere the how can you convince them?, and it is said, “You can wake up a person who is asleep, but you cannot wake up someone who is awake pretending he is asleep.”
