Gujarati Bhajan no. 945 by Satguru Devendra Ghia - Kaka
કદી ન કદી કુકર્મોનો ડંખ તો હૈયે લાગી જાય
શિક્ષા મળે એની જ્યારે, પહેલાં હૈયું તો કોરી ખાય
ભાન ભૂલી કુકર્મો થાતાં, ડંખ ભાન એનું જગાવી જાય
પરંપરા તો ચાલુ રહે, જ્યાં ડંખ એનો ન લાગી જાય
જાગૃત હૈયે ડંખ લાગે ભારી, સૂતેલાને પણ જગાડી જાય
માર પ્રભુનો છે એ તો એવો, હાથ તો એના ના દેખાય
રસ્તો ચૂકેલા, યોગી મુનિઓને પણ, રસ્તો બતાવી જાય
મરતાને પણ મર ના કહી, ડંખ એને તો મારી જાય
ઘા વાગે એના તો એવા, હૈયું આંસુ તો સારી જાય
આંસુએ, આંસુએ તો જીવન પરિવર્તન થાતું જાય
ગણવી કૃપા કે શિક્ષા પ્રભુની, એ તો ના સમજાય
સદ્દગુરુ દેવેન્દ્ર ઘીયા (કાકા)

Lyrics in English
kadi na kadi kukarmono dankha to haiye laagi jaay
shiksha male eni jyare, pahelam haiyu to kori khaya
bhaan bhuli kukarmo thatam, dankha bhaan enu jagavi jaay
parampara to chalu rahe, jya dankha eno na laagi jaay
jagrut haiye dankha laage bhari, sutelane pan jagadi jaay
maara prabhu no che e to evo, haath to ena na dekhaay
rasto chukela, yogi munione pana, rasto batavi jaay
maratane pan maara na kahi, dankha ene to maari jaay
gha vaage ena to eva, haiyu aasu to sari jaay
ansue, ansue to jivan parivartana thaatu jaay
ganavi kripa ke shiksha prabhuni, e to na samjaay

Explanation in English
In this Gujarati bhajan, he is reflecting on ill effects of bad actions.
He is saying...
Someday or the other, sting of your bad karmas (actions) will hit your heart.
When you will bear the punishment for it , then you will regret it in your heart.
When bad karmas (actions) happen without any senses, then the sting of these actions will wake you up. If the sting is not felt by you, then you will continue with your bad actions.
When you get the awareness, then the sting is felt intensely, and it wakes up any ignorant one also.
This slap of Almighty is such that, without the show of hands, you feel it.
Even misdirected yogis and sages are put in place with this slap. Even dying person doesn’t get spared, the sting hits the dying too.
The wound is so harsh that it pierces through the heart. But, with repentance, the life starts changing slowly.
Whether to believe this as grace or punishment of Divine, that is not comprehended.
Kaka is explaining that no one is spared from the punishment of their bad karmas. Otherwise, everyone will continue with their bad actions without any realization of its effect. When the ill effects are experienced by ourselves then we are awakened by Almighty and we get chance to rectify the same. When one is immersed in sincere and heartfelt repentance of his actions, one is enabled and motivated to undertake proper and correct action. This is the grace of Divine to uplift our souls.

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.
