One wonders how one could judge what level of initiation a particular 
individual has gone through. Many may have problems with claims of 
initiation.Of course there would be many who would take such conclusions on 
blind faith. This reminds me of the preachers who on sunday sermons claim 
they talked to Lord Jesus and many in the congregation do believe it and 
then make their tithe contribution.

PS: Initiations, Arhathship, Adeptshipt etc. has been so bandied about that 
the common man who comes across these words seems to end up having very 
erroneous ideas. I heard of an inquiry from a potential member to a "Lodge" 
asking how to get Adeptship and how much it costs! May be the individual 
thought he could get a diploma of Adeptship framed and displayed in his/her 
living room.
