Eswara as Srushthi Kaaraka and Sthiti Kaaraka and Laya Kaaraka is trifunctional As Srushthi Karta/potter, he makes this pot(Deham) out of Panch Bhutamulu in the capacity as Pancha Bhuta Natham.
As Sthiti Kaaraka. Eswara holds that pot (Deham) containing Pancha Prana Saktulu as contained in Pancha Bhutamulu for a fixed duration as decided by him as Maha Kaalam.
As Laya Kaaraka Eswara breaks this pot(Deham) when that duration is over and Pancha Prana Saktulu/Pancha Bhutamulu revert back to their original places.
What is the Moola Kaaranam(motivation) behind these three functions.
The purpose behind these three functions being carried out by Eswara infinitely as a potter is to enlighten us us to realize that this pot(Deham) is Anityam(temporary) and to surrender to him so as to reach him back as Nityam and Bhuta Natam by making a hole to it before it is broken by him in the form of death. When the pot has a hole , it stops holding water and accordingly it is thrown away by us and thus it reaches back its origin(Pancha Bhutamulu) when we are very much alive as Jivulu.
The practice of making a hole to a pot containing water at the time of burning a dead body in the cremation caries the above philosophical significance. .

As Atmajulam (children ) of Jagath Pita Eswara we have inherited this Kshetram/ /Deham containing SatNidhi/ Anandam within it because Pita Eswara is Ananta Ananda Rupam.
In order to dig out this Sat Nidhi/ Anandam , we need food as food gives Sakti(energy) and Sakti(energy) is the capacity for digging out this treasure.
Our Mother Uma (Universal Mother) Jagath Mata gives us food(Biksha) to derive Sakti (energy) in the form of three tools namely Sat Buddi as the strength and Eswara Jhnanam as crowbar (Gunhapam) and renunciation (Vairagyam) as spade because Mata Eswari is Ananta Sakti Swarupini.

There are two things that draw one's mind: hitha(the beneficial) and priya (the pleasant). Prefer the beneficial to the pleasant, for the pleasant might lead you down the sliding path into the bottomless pit. Vibhishana spoke hitha to Ravana, but he lent his ear to the priya that his sycophantic ministers spoke. He sealed his fate by this preference of pleasant over beneficial. The true doctor is interested in curing you of all illness and so, he advises hitha to restore your health; the Guru is such a doctor. Obey him even when his prescription is unpalatable, for, you will be cured! People suffer from the fever of the senses and they try the quack remedies of recreations, pleasures, picnics, banquets, dances, etc., only to find that the fever does not subside. The fever can subside only when the hidden virus is rendered ineffective. That virus will die only when the rays of jnana (wisdom) fall upon it.

Life is a campaign against foes; a battle with obstacles, temptations, hardships, and hesitations. These foes are within and so, the battle has to be incessant and perpetual. Like the virus that thrives in the bloodstream, the vices of lust, greed, hate, malice, pride and envy sap the energy and faith of every being and reduce them to untimely fall. You must strive to diagnose your own character and discover the faults that are infesting it; do not try to analyse the character of others and seek to spot their defects. This self-examination is very necessary to bring to light the defects that might undermine one's spiritual career. People buy clothes with deep colour, so that they may not reveal dust or dirt; they do not prefer white clothes, for they show plainly their soiled condition. But, do not try to hide your dirt in darkness; be ashamed of soiled natures and endeavour to cleanse them fast.

To wear robes and speak about
God but not think selflessly is not
being religious. One who wears
ordinary clothes, never speaks
about God and takes action
for the benefit of others is
truly practicing religion.

Don't give your mind to people whom you wouldn't give your time

Sometimes when somebody has hurt us very badly, then even if they want to meet us, we say, "I am not going to meet you." Because we don't want to be hurt again. We may decide that that person is just not worth our time. And yet although we don't give them our time, but still we give them our mind. That means we keep thinking about them, "Why did he do like that? Why did she speak like that? How could they have done like this?" and often we may find ourselves seething with indignation, burning with resentment, and cultivating revenge fantasies.

We can stop such thoughts by asking ourselves: "If I am not ready to give this person my time, then why am I giving them my mind?" By giving them our mind, we are basically giving them our time, because where our mind is, that's where we essentially are.

The Bhagavad-gita says that such self-destructive mental tendencies are characteristic of the mode of ignorance. In Gita (18.35) it is stated that doing daydreaming, being fearful, being morose, being pessimistic, being resentful, all these are characteristics of perverse determination dominated by the mode of ignorance.

How do we overcome this?

The whole Bhagavad-gita gives us the process of yoga, of bhakti yoga by which we can rise from ignorance through passion, through goodness, towards transcendence. And the easiest way to rise towards transcendence is by fixing our consciousness on the supreme transcendental reality, Krishna.

Thus, not only will we be protected from the unnecessary misery that comes by contemplating on those who have caused that distress, but rather we will get the supreme ecstasy by connecting with the Lord who is our eternal shelter and our eternal joy.

The essence of the four Vedamulu and Upanishats is achieve the four Purusha Arthamulu namely Dharmam,Artham, Kamam and Moksham
Sri Rama as Dharma Swarupam upheld Dharmam by leaving Rajyam(kingdom) for Vanam (forest) to spend fourteen years as Tapsvai(sage). Thus he conquered Artham (wealth) in accordance with Dharmam.
Secondly Prabhu Rama observed Kathina Brahmacharya Vratam(celibacy) despite being in the company of Patni Videhi during his Vana Vaasam. Thus again Prabhu Rama conquered Kamam by strictly adhering to Dharmam.
Thus if a person ties Artham and Kamam with Dharmam and controls both of them by strictly following Dharmam then he would automatically achieve the fourth Artham namely Moksham. This situation is just similar to the requirement of a person who wishes to make four sticks out of single stick then he has to cut that stick only three times. The reason being Dharmam as depicted in Srimad Ramayanam protects those who protect it.
