Gujarati Bhajan no. 1146 by Satguru Devendra Ghia - Kaka
ભૂખ્યાને અન્ન ગમે, તરસ્યાને પાણી ગમે
મા ને તો સદાયે, `મા' ના બાળ ગમે
રાજવીને રાજ ગમે, ત્યાગીને ત્યાગ ગમે - `મા' ને...
જ્ઞાનીને જ્ઞાન ગમે, ધ્યાનીને ધ્યાન ગમે - `મા' ને...
લડવૈયાને રણમેદાન ગમે, ભોગીને ભોગ ગમે - `મા' ને...
તપસ્વીને તપ ગમે, ભક્તોને ભક્તિ ગમે - `મા' ને...
લોભીને લોભ ગમે, દાનીને દાન ગમે - `મા' ને...
નેતાને મંચ ગમે, અભિનેતાને તાળી ગમે - `મા' ને...
કામીને કામ ગમે, નારીને અલંકાર ગમે - `મા' ને...
ટાઢમાં તો તાપ ગમે, તાપમાં તો છાંયડો ગમે - `મા' ને...
મૂંઝાયેલાને મારગ ગમે, ડૂબતાને નાવ ગમે - `મા' ને...
માનવીમાં રહ્યું છે બધું, ન જાણે ક્યારે શું નું શું ગમે - `મા' ને...

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 hungry cares for food, and a thirsty cares for water.
Divine Mother always cares for her children.

A royal cares for his kingdom, and a renouncer cares for his detachment.
A scholar cares for knowledge, and a meditator cares for his meditation.

A fighter cares for his battlefield, and a pleasure seeker cares for his pleasure.

An ascetic cares for his penance, and a devotee cares for his devotion.
A greedy cares for his greed, and a benefactor cares for his charity.

A leader cares for his stage, and an actor cares for applause.
A lustful person cares for his lust, and a woman cares for her ornaments.

In the cold, one cares for heat, and in the heat, one cares for a shade.
A confused cares for direction, and a drowning person cares for a boat.

Everything is needed by the human, no one knows when what will be liked and cared about.

Kaka is explaining that our desires, wants and needs keep changing all the time as per our own fancies and juggling thoughts and our own character. A human nature is such that he is always in fancy of something or the other. Our inherent qualities are so deep rooted that we get drawn by them without realization. Kaka is urging us to develop self control, self restraint and self discipline to actually have a fulfilling life.

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.
