Srimad-Bhagavatam: Canto 10 - Chapter 1 - Verse 19


तत्र तत्र तमायान्तं पौरा जानपदा नृप ।उपतस्थु: सार्घ्यहस्ता ग्रहै: सूर्यमिवोदितम् ॥ १९ ॥


tatra tatra tam āyāntaṁpaurā jānapadā nṛpaupatasthuḥ sārghya-hastāgrahaiḥ sūryam ivoditam


In every city and town the Lord passed along the way, O King, the people came forward to worship Him with offerings of arghya water in their hands, as if to worship the risen sun surrounded by planets.


Here the sages traveling with Kṛṣṇa on His chariot are likened to planets around the sun.
