Gujarati Bhajan no. 1083 by Satguru Devendra Ghia - Kaka
મીઠી મીઠી, લાગી માડી તારી માયાની જાળ
વીંટાતો રહ્યો છે સદાયે, એમાં તારો બાળ
ધીરે ધીરે રહી છે વીંટાતી, હૈયે બહુ જંજાળ
લાગે બહુ આકરી, છોડવી એ મધલાળ
લાળે લાળે, મધ તો ઝરતું, લાગે બહુ રસાળ
ભાન એમાં તો જાતું, એમાં સમજાયે ના કાળ
કદી કદી લાગી માડી, તું તો વિકરાળ
પગલાં મારાં પડે જો આડા, માડી એને સંભાળ
ભરી ભરી અમીના તો દીધાં અમને થાળ
ના સંતોષાયા હૈયા અમારા, રહ્યા અમે તો કંગાળ
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 always. In this bhajan of life approach,

He is saying...
Found sweet and sweeter, your web of illusion, O Divine Mother.
This child of yours has been swayed by it.

Slowly, slowly, have enveloped lot of tension in heart.
Finding it hard to let go of this honey like illusion.

With every drop of that honey, I feel very tempted.
Not realising the temptation, and have not understood the impact.

Many times, O Divine Mother, you look ferocious,
When I take wrong steps, O Mother, please take care of me.

Though you have given us pots of nectar, we have always remained dissatisfied, and we have always remained miserable.

Kaka is explaining that in the first place, we get allured by the fake sweetness of this illusion, which gets increasingly burdensome for us later. Instead of counting our blessings and feeling the gratitude, we are always in search of something even more frivolous. Kaka is urging us to have satisfaction in life, which will lead us to internal joy and peace. Kaka is urging us to remain in gratitude for this human life, for all the blessings showered upon us, for all the happiness already given to us. We must acknowledge and value the grace of Divine Mother.

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.
