Presumably we're talking about a respected lama. So I would suggest that from here on out we discuss this experience carefully, and as Magnus suggested, knowing who the lama is might put this in a more coherent perspective.

Their recruiting method was very smooth: a man gave me a piece of chocolate...and then tried to get my name and phone number for their contact list. It was like a political campaign or something.
My sangha never actively recruits people; we let them come to us instead.
The sadhana the lama was teaching did seem quite wonderful and extraordinary, but I really wonder how many people can benefit from a completion stage sadhana if they haven't yet completed--or even started--the generation stage.At this point I think it is reasonable that you tell us who this Lama is.
