    initiate

    Hello everyone

    I'd like to ask about the meaning of "initiates" in the following context:

    I am from Lemuria, an ancient civilization. At the time of Lemuria’s height, I was an Initiate in the Temples that were promi-nent at that time. After the destruction of Lemuria by Atlantis, I went underground with thousands of others, to establish Telos.

    We, too, have answered this Clarion Call to gather at this sacred site to celebrate the Wesak Festival. We, too, are participants in Earth’s Ascension Plan, and we, too, are Disciples and Initiates on the Path of Ascension. We, too, are participants in this ceremonial activation and initiations taking place over these three Wesak days.

    Does "Initiate" mean the same as "pupil"?

    It should be in your dictionary - "a person who has been initiated", that is, a person who had just joined these "Temples" spoken of in the extract.

    The fact that whoever wrote it capitalises the word Initiates makes it seem like it is more than just a word, but rather what they were referred to and called.
