Why didn't he appear to Buddha or other monks when they were meditating?

Because Siddhartha was just on the verge of enlightenment. It was the last desperate attempt to keep him from becoming a Buddha. Mara was the final boss, so to speak.

Your question in the post contradicts your title question. Anyway, the daughters were incredibly hot and tried to seduce the Buddha. Mara was a demon and tried to scare and kill the Buddha.

What's a more awkward title? Final Fantasy II or the Neverending Story II?

They appear to every person trying to achieve nirvana in some form of another.

All I have to do to get an orgy is make an attempt at nirvana?

If you're on the verge of Nirvana, I don't think you got there by looking for an orgy. If you want an orgy that bad, go hire three hookers.
