C.L.Jinarajadasa, in ~First Principles of Theosophy~ (Wheaton,
please reprint) cites varying intervals, from quite short to
quite long - varies from monad to monad or some such.

Of course, my karma and dharma is such that in *this* life I
don't believe in reincarnation at all, except now and then.
