    Initiation is when you first join a Lodge and become an Apprentice, when you are finally given the third degree that is described as raised.

    They all have meaning. Being "initiated" is pretty self explanatory, but being "passed" and "raised" will make sense after the FC and MM degrees, respectively.

    Some refer to being "initiated" as "entered" also. It is basically the same thing.
