This poem carries a deep meaning. They are thoughts of Dasganu. In Chapter 4 of Sacred Text - Sai Satcharitra, Once, Das Ganu thought that he should go to Prayag for a bath, and came to Sai Baba to get His permission for doing so. Sai Baba replied to him - "It is not necessary to go so long. Our Prayag is here, believe me." Then wonder of wonders! When Das Ganu placed his head on Sai Baba’s Feet, out came or flowed streams, of Ganga - Yamuna water, from both the toes of Sai Baba. Seeing this miracle, Das Ganu was overwhelmed with feelings of love and adoration and was full of tears. Inwardly, he felt inspired, and his speech burst forth into a song in praise of Sai Baba and His Leelas. But he did not drink that water thinking Sai Baba to be a Muslim. Later, he realised his mistake and confessed it before Baba. The following poem beautifully narrates feelings of Dasganu during his confession.
Na To Mein Choron Ko Pakad Paya
Na To Apne Bheetar Ke Chor Ko Bhaga Paya,
Mein To Apni Masti Ka Mastana Tha
Bas Naach-Gaane Ka Deewana Tha,
Police Ka Danda Chalata Tha
Apna Baaj Bajata Tha...
Ghumte - Ghumte Maine Tumko Paya
Lekin Tumko Samajh Na Paya
Main Choron Ke Peeche Bhaga Par Na Unko Pakad Paya
Na Apne Bheetar Ke Chor Ko Bhaga Paya,
Tumhara Khel Bhi,
Meri Samajh Na Aaya
Ghum Kar Main Tumhare Hi Paas Aaya...
Ek Din Maine Tumse Farmaya
Prayag Snan Ko Jana Hai
Usmein Dubki Laga
Apna Jeevan Safal Banana Hai,
Baba... Tum Bole, Ab Kahan Jaaoge
Ganga - Jamuna Yahin Paaoge,
Yeh Kehna Tha
Tumhare Charno Se Ganga-Jamuna Nikli
Logon Ne Us Jal Ko Uthaya
Apni Aankhe, Apni Jihwa
Apne Hriday Se Usey Lagaya
Lekin Tumhara Yeh Khel
Meri Samajh Na Aaya
Us Din Maine Tumhara Pyar
Bas Yun Hi Gawaya...
Baba... Na To Main Choron Ko Pakad Paya
Na Hi Apna Chor Bhaga Paya,
Lekin Baad Mein Bahut Pachtaya
Mera Vishwas Dagmagaya Tha
Mera Sabr Thartharaya Tha,
Phir Bhi Tumne Himmat Na Haari
Apne Pyar Se Saari Baazi Palat Daali
Mujh Par Apna Pyar Barsaya
Mujhe Sai Leelamrit Ka Paan Karaya
SadGuru... Tumhara Yeh Khel
Meri Samajh Na Aaya
Tumne Hi To
Mere Bheetar Ke Chor Ko Bhagaya...
न तो में चोरों को पकड़ पाया
न तो अपने भीतर के चोर को भगा पाया,
में तो अपनी मस्ती का मस्ताना था
बस नाच-गाने का दीवाना था,
पुलिस का डंडा चलाता था
अपना बाज बजाता था...
घूमते - घूमते मैंने तुमको पाया
लेकिन तुमको समझ न पाया
मैं चोरों के पीछे भागा पर न उनको पकड़ पाया
न अपने भीतर के चोर को भगा पाया,
तुम्हारा खेल भी, मेरी समझ न आया
घूम कर मैं तुम्हारे ही पास आया...
एक दिन मैंने तुमसे फ़रमाया
प्रयाग स्नान को जाना है
उसमें डूबकी लगा
अपना जीवन सफल बनाना है,
बाबा... तुम बोले, अब कहाँ जाओगे
गंगा-जमुना यहीं पाओगे,
यह कहना था
तुम्हारे चरणों से गंगा-जमुना निकली
लोगों ने उस जल को उठाया
अपनी आँखे, अपनी जिह्वा
अपने ह्रदय से उसे लगाया
लेकिन तुम्हारा यह खेल
मेरी समझ न आया
उस दिन मैंने तुम्हारा प्यार
बस यूँ ही गवायाँ ...
बाबा ... न तो मैं चोरों को पकड़ पाया
न ही अपना चोर भगा पाया,
लेकिन बाद में बहुत पछताया
मेरा विश्वास डगमगाया था
मेरा सब्र थरथराया था,
फिर भी तुमने हिम्मत न हारी
अपने प्यार से सारी बाज़ी पलट डाली
मुझ पर अपना प्यार बरसाया
मुझे साईं लीलामृत का पान कराया
सद्गुरु... तुम्हारा यह खेल मेरी समझ न आया
तुमने ही तो
मेरे भीतर के चोर को भगाया...
Neither could I catch the thieves, nor neither my inner thief got away. I had fun in my happy going nature and was dance - song crazy. I used stick of Police and issued orders. While roaming about I found you. But I did not understand. I ran after thieves, but could not hold on. Neither could I catch the thieves, nor neither my inner thief got away. I did not understand Your Games. At last i came to You after roaming many places. One day I said, "I wish to go to Prayag for bath to succeed my life. Baba ... You said, "Where will you now, you will get Ganga - Jamuna here." I said this and out came Ganga - Jamuna from Your Feet. People took that water and touched their eyes, tongue and applied it to their hearts too. But I did not understand Your game. That day I missed Your love. Baba, Neither could I catch the thieves, nor neither my inner thief got away. Later, i repented much, my faith trembled and my patience shook. Yet You were not lost and put Your love to turn the whole game. You showered Your love on me and gave me nectar of Your leela. Sadguru...I did not understand Your Sports. You only made thief inside me run away.
