Maya (माया) is the Sanskrit term. Nearest meaning of this in English is illusion. But traditional Acharya and gurus gurus explain it as “which does not have its own existence but its independent existence from the sensual perception point of view cannot be denied”. Like shadow of a person, image of a person, seeking snake on a rope in the darkness. Highest maya is the maya of God. Indian Vedic scriptures says that this world is maya of the God.
