માનવ તન પામીને મનવા, શાને તું મૂંઝાય


Maanav Tan Pamine Manva, Shane Tu Munjaye

જ્ઞાન, સત્ય, આભાર (Knowledge, Truth, Thanks)

Gujarati Bhajan no. 123 by Satguru Devendra Ghia - Kaka
માનવ તન પામીને મનવા, શાને તું મૂંઝાય
લખચોરાસી ફેરા ફરીને, પામ્યો છે દેહ તું આજ
સમજીને કરજે ઉપયોગ મનવા, અંતે એ બનશે રાખ
પળપળનો ઉપયોગ કરજે મનવા, વેડફતો ના શ્વાસ
વાણી, દૃષ્ટિ શુદ્ધ રાખજે મનવા, જોજે પાપ ના ભરાય
ભાવોના લહેરાતા સાગરમાં, જોજે અહંકાર ના ભરાય
જગત છે લોભામણું રે મનવા, સંબંધ છે દેહની સાથ
દેહ પણ જ્યાં નથી રહેવાનો, કરજે તું આ વિચાર
આસક્તિ સર્વમાંથી છોડજે મનવા, નહીં આવે તારી સાથ
પ્રભુમાં ચિત્ત જોડજે રે મનવા, જાવું છે એની પાસ
સદ્દગુરુ દેવેન્દ્ર ઘીયા (કાકા)

Lyrics in English
manav tana pamine manava, shaane tu munjhaya
lakhachorasi phera pharine, paamyo che deh tu aaj
samajine karje upayog manava, ante e banshe rakha
pal pal no upayog karje manava, vedaphato na shvas
vani, drishti shuddh rakhaje manava, joje paap na bharaya
bhavona laherata sagaramam, joje ahankaar na bharaya
jagat che lobhamanum re manava, sambandha che dehani saath
deh pan jya nathi rahevano, karje tu a vichaar
asakti sarvamanthi chhodaje manava, nahi aave taari saath
prabhu maa chitt jodaje re manava, javu che eni paas

Explanation in English
Explanation 1:
In this bhajan, kaka is pointing out the hard facts of life.
One gets the birth of a human after finishing the cycle of eighty four lakhs birth of different species. You get this birth of a human with the body that can do many many things and a mind that can do wonders. But, you need to value what is given to you and make the best use of your mind and body. These are your tools to fulfill your purpose in life. In the end, you are going to be back with Mother Earth and become mere ash. You have limited time in this human form and you need value each and every second of your life. You need to keep your thoughts and speech pure and not hurtful. You need to control your ego.
This world is very attractive place, but truth of the matter is that this world is very superficial and the very nature of this world is temporary and mortal. All connections are limited to physical existence, so why get attached to something that is temporary and going to end one day.
You need to get connected to God. You are part of that energy and you need to get back to it when it is possible in your human form. This is the divine truth of life.

Explanation 2:
In this bhajan Sadguru Kakaji is narrating the worth of getting a human body, which is Gods most biggest and beautiful creation. As getting the human body is the most invaluable gift which is a resource of Self realisation to achieve God, but it's not so, as getting the human body form we all forget the worth of it
Kakaji is trying hard to explain and make us understand the importance of this precious body which we gain by going through the eighty four lakh cycles of birth and death, So how can we afford to be confused. Our thoughts have to be clear for the usage of this body as in the end it has to fall to ashes.
Each and every moment, every breath is is precious so don't just waste it being idle.
Your speech and sight has to be pure, don't just fill impurities in it.
This body goes through innumerable emotions so we have to be cautious while giving space to arrogance in it.
As the world is filled with self centred people, they just relate to the body no relationships with the soul.
As it's said it is not our permanent shelter, as the body is no longer to stay here, then why are we trapped in fascination and attractions of this earth.
So Kakaji says to
Detach your self with the world and attach yourself with Almighty which shall lead you to the path of peace, self realisation, happiness.
