Though we speak of observing the Ten Worlds in one’s own life as an ordinary person, the key issue is whether we can manifest the world of Buddhahood. The reason the Daishonin talks about “perceiving the Ten Worlds” and not “perceiving the world of Buddhahood” is that even when the world of Buddhahood manifests, the other nine worlds don’t simply disappear. That’s because “observing the mind” always means observing the true aspect of the mutual possession of the Ten Worlds.
For instance, suppose you were to reach a complete impasse, agonizing in the life-state of the world of Hell. By perceiving the true aspect of the mutual possession of the Ten Worlds and being convinced of the great life force of the world of Buddhahood that undeniably endows your life, you can overcome everything and realize victory.
