The 1,000 to 1,500 year period of Devachan is mentioned by HPB in
KEY TO THEOSOPHY on pp. 145 and 191-2. Ocean 112, ML speaks
generally of Devachan between pp. 103, 191-201.

If the stay in Devachan depends on the "noble and altruistic
psychic impulses" generated during life, it stands to reason that
little children, or very young persons, dying, do not leave very
much for a lengthy meditation (ML 103, 200) -- consequently a
"quick" or an "almost immediate" reincarnation may occur -- there
are a number stories of "memories of past life" which illustrate
this available. In some cases the same "astral body" may be
again used, in which cases such "last life" memories are
