Gujarati Bhajan no. 1140 by Satguru Devendra Ghia - Kaka
સિક્કાની હોય બે બાજુ, નોખ નોખી દેખાય
એક વિના પણ રહે અધૂરો એ અધૂરો ગણાય
સુખદુઃખ જીવનની બે બાજુ, જીવનમાં બંને સમાય
એક વિના પણ, જીવન તો અધૂરું ગણાય
એક પાસું સદા રહે ઉપર, બીજું ત્યારે ના દેખાય
એક પાસું સદા રહે ના ઉપર, ક્રમ આ ના બદલાય
એક પાસું સદા રહે ના ઉપર એમાં તો બદલી થાય
ક્યારે કયું ઉપર, ક્યારે નીચે, એ તો ના કહેવાય
અદ્ભુત ક્રમ છે આ જીવનનો, ચાલ્યો આવે સદાય
ધીરજથી રાહ જોજો, ધાર્યું પાસું ઉપર આવી જાય
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 on life approach and understanding,

He is saying...
There are two sides to a coin, and they both look different.
One is incomplete without the other one.

Similarly, joys and sorrows are the two aspects of life, and both are equal parts of this life.
Life is incomplete without either one.

When one remains on the top, then the other one is not seen.
But, one cannot stay on the top forever. This pattern never changes.

One cannot stay on the top forever, it will always change.
When which one will be on the top, that cannot be said.

This is a unique pattern of life, which is continuing since forever.
Please wait with patience, and the expected element of life will come back on the top.

Kaka is explaining that nothing in life stays the same forever, be it happiness or sorrows. Change is a constant thing in life. Joys and sorrows are the true essence of life, and one is incomplete without the other one. Kaka is urging us to deal with our unhappiness with patience, as eventually, happiness will resurface. Kaka is also urging us to keep our balance in thoughts through negative and positive circumstances, because none of these circumstances are going to last forever. One must not get too excited with happiness and not get too dejected with unhappiness. Eventually, it will pass.

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.
