Gujarati Bhajan no. 722 by Satguru Devendra Ghia - Kaka
બનાવી મંદિરો મંદિરો, રહ્યો પૂજી માનવ મૂર્તિ તારી
ગયો ચૂકી પૂજવું, મનમંદિરે મૂર્તિ તારી તો સ્થાપી
ના રહી શકે તારી મૂર્તિ, મંદિરની તો સાથે ને સાથે
રહેશે તો મૂર્તિ મનમંદિરની તો સદાયે પાસે ને પાસે
રહેશે વિક્ષેપ સદા તને બહારનો ને અંદરનો તો મંદિરે
નડશે વિક્ષેપ તારો પોતાનો તને તો મનમંદિરે
પડશે ભૂલવી તારી ને અન્યની હાજરી દેવમંદિરે
રહેશે ભૂલવી તારી પોતાની હાજરી તો મનમંદિરે
હશે વાતાવરણ તો મંદિરે ધૂપ ને સુગંધે મ્હેકતું પડશે રાખવું મ્હેકતું સત્કર્મોથી આંગણું મનમંદિરનું
બનશે મુશ્કેલ મળવી એકલતા તો સદા દેવમંદિરે
પડશે મુશ્કેલ ગોતવી એકલતા તો નિજ મનમંદિરે
હશે તું અને મૂર્તિ `મા' ની, સદા સામે તો મનમંદિરે
જાજે તું ઓગળી એમાં સ્થાપી મૂર્તિ સદા મનમંદિરે
સદ્દગુરુ દેવેન્દ્ર ઘીયા (કાકા)

Lyrics in English
banavi mandiro mandiro, rahyo puji manav murti taari
gayo chuki pujavum, manamandire murti taari to sthapi
na rahi shake taari murti, mandirani to saathe ne saathe
raheshe to murti manamandirani to sadaaye paase ne paase
raheshe vikshepa saad taane baharano ne andarano to mandire
nadashe vikshepa taaro potano taane to manamandire
padashe bhulavi taari ne anya ni hajari devamandire
raheshe bhulavi taari potani hajari to manamandire
hashe vatavarana to mandire dhupa ne sugandhe nhekatum padashe rakhavum nhekatum satkarmothi anganum manamandiranum
banshe mushkel malavi ekalata to saad devamandire
padashe mushkel gotavi ekalata to nija manamandire
hashe tu ane murti 'maa' ni, saad same to manamandire
jaje tu ogali ema sthapi murti saad manamandire

Explanation in English
In this very beautiful bhajan of introspection, Shri Devendra Ghia, our Guruji, fondly called Pujya Kaka is illuminating us on our ways of worship.
He is saying...
Creating many many temples, humans are worshipping your idol in there.
While actually, he is making a mistake of not worshipping you in his own temple of heart.
Idol of temple can not be with you at all times, while idol of the temple of your heart can not be away from you at any time.
In the temple, you are distracted by physical proximity of inside and outside, while, in temple of your heart, you are distracted by your own thoughts.
In the temple, you will have to forget about presence of others, while, in the temple of your heart, you will have to forget about your own self.
Atmosphere in temple, is scented with Dhoop (incense), and perfume, while in temple of your heart, atmosphere is scented with your noble karmas (actions).
It will be difficult to get isolation (physical) in the temple, while, in temple of your heart, it will be difficult to find isolation because of clutter of your thoughts.
In temple of your heart, it will be only you and idol of Divine Mother, please immerse yourself in that idol of Divine Mother in oneness.
Kaka is explaining that worshipping is not an external activity of going into the temple and trying to focus and connect with Divine, it is a most intimate and internal activity of your heart, emotions, feelings and devotion. When you worship from within the depth of your heart, leaving all your thoughts, and focus in Divine, then your God is invoked within you only. The power of spiritual forces is within you only.
