Gujarati Bhajan no. 1058 by Satguru Devendra Ghia - Kaka
જ્યાં જેમ શોભતું હોય, ત્યાં તો તેમ કરાય, રે ભાઈ ત્યાં તો તેમ કરાય
રાજદ્વારે ગર્દભ ન શોભે, ગરીબ દ્વારે હાથી ના બંધાય
સ્મશાને શરણાઈ ના શોભે, લગ્નમંડપે મરશિયા ના ગવાય
મોજડી તો માથે ન શોભે, માને બાપની બૈરી ના કહેવાય
સિંહને ઘાસ ના શોભે, માંદાને પકવાન ના ધરાય
દિવસે તારા ના શોભે, મહેલ જોઈ ઝૂંપડી ના બળાય
પાવૈયાના હાથમાં તલવાર ના શોભે, વીરને સાંબેલું ના અપાય
સંત પાસે શૃંગારરસ ના શોભે, ગણિકા દ્વારે ભજન ના ગવાય
ચંદ્રમામાં તાપ ના શોભે, સૂર્યમાં શીતળતા ના પમાય
ભૂખ્યા પાસે જ્ઞાન ના શોભે, અભણ પાસે જ્ઞાનના થોથા ના રખાય
પ્રભુનું ભજન કે પૂજન કરતા, માયાનું ધ્યાન ના ધરાય
સદ્દગુરુ દેવેન્દ્ર ઘીયા (કાકા)

Explanation in English
Shri Devendra Ghia, fondly called Pujya Kaka, our Guruji has given treasure of bhajans through which he is guiding us, influencing us, illuminating us and being with us. In this Gujarati bhajan,

He is saying...
Where what works, that’s what is done there, that’s what is done there.

On the door of a palace, a donkey cannot be displayed, and an elephant cannot be tied to the door of the hut.

Shehnai (musical instrument played at the wedding) cannot be played at the crematory, and sad songs about death cannot be played at the wedding.

Footwear cannot be worn on the head, and Mother cannot be called as father’s wife.

The grass is not suitable for a lion, and feast is not suitable for the sick.

During the day, stars cannot shine, and looking at a palace, hut should not be burned.

A sword is not suitable in the hands of a coward and a musical instrument cannot be given in the hands of a warrior.

Passion is not suitable for a saint, and a hymn cannot be sung by a courtesan.

The heat doesn’t suit the moon, and the coolness cannot be sustained in the sun.

The knowledge doesn’t appeal to the hungry, and books of knowledge cannot be put in front of uneducated.

While worshipping and praying to God, the focus should not be on illusion.

Kaka is beautifully explaining that there are protocols for everything in life. There is certain etiquette in every activity. In cosmic arrangement also everything is aligned and serves a purpose. Just like social norms, there are Laws of nature. Kaka is also explaining that the result can be achieved only by one point focus. He is urging us that worship, prayer and devotion should be such that there is no deviation from it at any time or in any direction.

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.
