Krishna says in Bhagvad Gita: 'I am not manifest to all as I don't revel myself to all, because everyone is veiled by Yoga Maya.'

Maya means illusion. Maya means that which is temporary, that which is not the truth. Maya simply means appearance. Like the sunset is maya, because it only appears to be setting. In reality it is not setting. So sunset is maya.

You put a pencil in a beaker of water and it appears to be curved or bent, that is maya. Maya means that which changes, which is not permanent.
