Are Dzogchen practitioners guaranteed to eventually attain the buddhahood that doesn't revert to the basis? Does this necessarily include the body of light?

Malcolm,

I've heard that it is possible for 13-16th stage Buddhas to revert back to the basis if they let it in the innumerable dark eon intervals to come. Any truth to this?

Fascinating stuff. So after innumerable cycles will all the beings that realize and then forget their 'non-Dzogchen liberation' eventually, (randomly?) find Dzogchen teachings and be irreversibly realized? In other words will there ever be a complete cessation of suffering to this existence?

Jyoti, what is the point of wasting time practicing if Buddhahood is impermanent?

Which one would you prefer?
The Blessed One said:

"What is the All? Simply the eye & forms, ear & sounds, nose & aromas, tongue & flavors, body & tactile sensations, intellect & ideas. This, monks, is called the All. Anyone who would say, 'Repudiating this All, I will describe another,' if questioned on what exactly might be the grounds for his statement, would be unable to explain, and furthermore, would be put to grief. Why? Because it lies beyond range." Sabba Sutta.
