माया māyā (SKT) - the world illusion:-

The Indian term for illusion is māyā derived from the Sanskrit verbal root to measure, to measure out, to form, to create, exhibit or display. It refers to the power that creates an illusion and the illusion itself. Māyā is experienced as fascination, charm; specifically feminine charm. It is said to possess three powers: a Veiling Power, a Projecting Power and a Revealing Power. Related to the PIE root for moon?
