Maya was what the ascetics called the deadly illusion that distracts the soul from its true mission. They believed that the world of the senses was the world of maya. [1] The meaning of maya was centered on the fact that people did not experience the environment itself but rather a projection of it, created by them. The maya were also called to the abilities of the Kakita Artisan and they were used to increase their knowledge of Acrobatics, Dancing, Jester, Music, Origami, Painting, Storytelling, Ikebana, Noh/Kabuki, or Poetry.
