Gujarati Bhajan no. 620 by Satguru Devendra Ghia - Kaka
હાંકી છે નાવડી આ સંસારમાં, નાવડી તો ચાલી જાય
ભવસાગરમાં રહી છે ચાલતી, કિનારો તો ના દેખાય
ડોલતી, ડોલતી રહી એ ચાલતી, ન જાણે ક્યારે ડૂબી જાય
રહી છે સહન કરી, ભરતી ને ઓટની થપાટ મોજાની વાગે વારંવાર
સાથમાં છે સૌ સાથી, એકલી અટૂલી તોયે ચાલી જાય
ચોતરફ છે પાણી, વચ્ચે છે નાવડી, અહીં તહીં એ ઘસડાય
ટાઢ ને તડકો, સહન એ કરતી, વિશ્વાસે એ ચાલી જાય
અંધકારે ઘેરાતી, પ્રકાશ તલસતી, એ તો ચાલી જાય
દિશા નવ સૂઝતી, રહી છે ચાલતી, એ તો ચાલી જાય
થાકે આંખડી ઘેરાતી, ઝોલે એ ચડતી, એ તો ચાલી જાય
સદ્દગુરુ દેવેન્દ્ર ઘીયા (કાકા)

Explanation in English
In this beautiful Gujarati bhajan, Shri Devendra Ghia, our Guruji, fondly called Pujya Kaka is describing the status of our life with synopsis of a boat.
He is saying...
Rowing the boat (life) in this world, boat keeps on moving.
Boat is moving in the large ocean (universe), and shores (liberation) are no where to be seen.
The boat is oscillating and moving without balance. Never know when it will drown.
It is bearing the beating of waves during high and low tide (circumstances) again and again.
Together, there are many boats, still it’s moving all alone.
In all four directions, there is water (illusion), in between, is the boat and it is dragged here and there.
It is bearing cold and heat of sunlight,
But, moving in faith.
Surrounded by darkness (ignorance), longing for light (awareness), it
Keeps on moving.
It is moving without any direction, just keeps on moving (rut of life).
With tiredness, eyes are shutting, and feeling very sleepy, but life still goes on.
Kaka is explaining, how our life passes without realising our purpose. When destination is only not known then how can one walk on correct path! Most of our life is oscillating in useless agenda. The real agenda is left alone. We come across many circumstances and many people, which makes us even more unbalanced, our state is such that we are in the middle of this illusion, no upliftment in sight and no direction towards Divine.

He has written about 10,000 hymns which cover various aspects of spirituality, such as devotion, inner knowledge, truth, meditation, right action and right living. Most of the Bhajans are in Gujarati, but there is also a treasure trove of Bhajans in English, Hindi and Marathi languages.
