Why Maya?

Māyā in Sanskrit has multiple meanings in Indian philosophies depending on the context. It literally means ‘magic’ or ‘illusion’ suggesting there’s more to reality than we superficially see. In ancient Vedic literature, Māyā signifies wisdom and extraordinary power. The root of the word may be man- or “to think” — in early Vedic usage this implies “a wondrous and mysterious power to turn an idea into a physical reality”.
