Srimad Bhagavatam Canto 10, Chapter 23, Text 09

SB 10.23.9

iti te bhagavad-yacñam
 srnvanto ’pi na susruvuh
ksudrasa bhuri-karmano
 balisa vrddha-maninah
The brahmanas heard this supplication from the Supreme Personality of Godhead, yet they refused to pay heed. Indeed, they were full of petty desires and entangled in elaborate rituals. Though presuming themselves advanced in Vedic learning, they were actually inexperienced fools.
These childish brahmanas were full of petty desires, such as the desire to attain to material heaven, and therefore they could not recognize the golden transcendental opportunity offered them by the arrival of Krsna’s personal boyfriends. Presently, throughout the world, people are madly pursuing material advancement and thus cannot hear the message of the Supreme Lord Krsna that is being broadcast through the missionary activities of the Krsna consciousness movement. Times have hardly changed, and proud, materialistic priests are still prevalent on the earth.
