“Maya” according to Wikipedia:

Maya (religion), in Dharmic religions, relates to the illusion of reality

Maya, literally “illusion” or “magic”, has multiple meanings in Indian philosophies depending on the context.

In Vedic texts, māyā connotes a “magic show, an illusion where things appear to be present but are not what they seem”. Māyā also connotes that which “is constantly changing and thus is spiritually unreal” (in opposition to an unchanging Absolute), and therefore “conceals the true character of spiritual reality”.

In the Advaita Vedanta school of Hindu philosophy, māyā, “appearance”, is “the powerful force that creates the cosmic illusion that the phenomenal world is real”. In this nondualist school, māyā at the individual level appears as the lack of knowledge of the real Self, mistakingly identifying with the body-mind complex and its entanglements.

In Buddhist philosophy, māyā is one of twenty subsidiary unwholesome mental factors, responsible for deceit or concealment about the illusionary nature of things.
