જ્ઞાન, સત્ય, આભાર (Knowledge, Truth, Thanks)

Gujarati Bhajan no. 1002 by Satguru Devendra Ghia - Kaka
પીળું તો સોનું હોય ને વળી પિત્તળ ભી પીળું હોય
ચડતા કસોટીએ તો, મૂલ્ય એના નોખા નોખા હોય
હીરો તો સદા ચમકે, પડેલ કાચ પણ ચમકે ઘણો
પડતા હાથ ઝવેરીના, પરખ તો ત્યાં સાચી હોય
કોયલ ભી હોય તો કાળી, વળી કાગડા કાળા હોય
વાણી નીકળતાં તો, છુપે રહે ના એ કોઈ
હંસ તો સફેદ હોય, વળી બગલા ભી સફેદ હોય
દેખાતા તો માછલી, બગલો છુપે ના રહે કોઈ
ઠગ સાત સજે સાધુનો વેશ, વખતે એ તો ધૈર્ય ખોય
સુખમાં મળશે મિત્રો ઘણાં, દુઃખમાં તો ટકે ના કોઈ
સદ્દગુરુ દેવેન્દ્ર ઘીયા (કાકા)

Lyrics in English
pilum to sonum hoy ne vaali pittala bhi pilum hoy
chadata kasotie to, mulya ena nokha nokha hoy
hiro to saad chamake, padela kachha pan chamake ghano
padata haath javerina, parakha to tya sachi hoy
koyala bhi hoy to kali, vaali kagada kaal hoy
vani nikalatam to, chhupe rahe na e koi
hansa to sapheda hoya, vaali bagala bhi sapheda hoy
dekhata to machhali, bagalo chhupe na rahe koi
thaga sata saje sadhuno vesha, vakhate e to dhairya khoya
sukhama malashe mitro ghanam, duhkhama to take na koi

Explanation in English
In this bhajan of life approach,
He is saying...
Gold is yellow in colour, and so is brass. When both are put to test, then the actual value is seen.
Diamonds always sparkle, and glass also sparkles like diamonds when laid out. Upon an inspection of a jeweller, true identity gets revealed.
Cuckoo is black, and crows are also black. But with a sound off, all the mystery unfolds.
Swan is white, and ducks are also white. But as soon as fish is seen, ducks can not be contained.
A con man can wear a disguise and pretend to be a saint. But, at the right time his lack of patience is displayed.
In happy times, many friends will be found. But no one will last in the times of sorrow.
Kaka is explaining that looks can be very deceiving. The most important thing is the inherent quality, whether it is of a metal, or a stone, or a bird, or even a human. Carefully guarded outer cover is immediately unfolded as soon as it is put through a test. Kaka is also reflecting on the hypocrisy of humans, not only in the behaviour with each other, but also with their own inner self. Kaka is urging us to have the correct perspective in life and not get carried away by fake appearances. Judging our own selves, or people or judging a situation in life requires clarity in heart, mind and thoughts.

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.
