Gujarati Bhajan no. 1109 by Satguru Devendra Ghia - Kaka
દીવડો તો પ્રકાશીને દે છે સહુને તો અજવાળું
તોયે સદાયે જોવા મળે, દીવડા નીચે તો અંધારું
વિશાળ વડલો આશ્રય દે, તાપ વરસાદે બચવાનું
તોયે એના નીચે ના કદી, ફૂલ ઝાડ તો ખીલવાનું
કાષ્ટની હોડી કામ કરે સહી, તરીને તારવાનું
વજન અસહ્ય વધતાં એમાં, એ ડૂબે અને ડુબાડવાનું
જલતો અગ્નિ જલતો રહી, જલે અને જલાવવાનું
તાપ એ તો ખૂબ તપીને, તપે અને તપાવવાનું
વાંચી થોથાં જ્ઞાનના બહુ, જગનું જ્ઞાન મળવાનું
તોયે ક્યાંથી આવ્યાં, ક્યાં જાવાના, એ તો ના સમજાવાનું
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 Gujarati bhajan,

He is saying...
A lamp gives light to everyone,
But, the darkness is always seen below the lamp.

A giant banyan tree gives protection against heat and rain,
But, below the tree no flower or other tree will grow.

The wooden boat floats and saves everyone,
But, as the weight increases, it will drown and will drown everyone in it.

The burning fire burns itself and others.
But, the strong heat of the fire just destroys.

Reading books of knowledge, will give the knowledge of the world,
But, where we come from, where we are going, that will not be understood by those books.

Kaka is explaining that all elements of this universe has a purpose for its existence, but expecting more than its purpose brings only disasters. Kaka is urging us to focus on the goodness in this world. Do not exploit the goodness beyond its limits.
Kaka is also explaining that bookish understanding and knowledge is not giving any actual understanding and wisdom about our existence, it just gives knowledge of this world.
