The Supreme Lord said: My dear brahmana, you should know that these great sages have come here just to bless you. They travel throughout the worlds with Me, purifying them with the dust of their feet.

Srila Sridhara Svami explains that Lord Krsna thought Srutadeva had shown too much reverence to Him and not enough to the sages, and thus He turned the brahmana’s attention to them.
