Per Merriam-Webster dictionary –
Etymology: Sanskrit mAyA
: the sense-world of manifold phenomena held in Vedanta to conceal the unity of absolute being; broadly : ILLUSION
To say maya is an illusion is to not grasp the meaning and purport of the word. And each person is engulfed in a maya of their own creation.

Vani said she is working on the vipassana article and was confident she would get it published soon. I will include the link to it.
Vipassana helped me understand maya and how to come to terms with the influence and the effect maya has in my life. 🙂
