n  important  part  of   Meher   Baba's  work
 through  the  years  has  been  to   contact
and  help the SPECIAL TYPE of  God-intoxi-
cated aspirants known to the East  as Masts.  These

 Men of God, who are themselves the "Great Heroes" of the Spiritual Path, have at times spontaneously given expression to their recognition of Baba as He Is: they are able to see and know from personal inner knowledge The Real Being that is Baba. As Dr. Donkin points out in "The Wayfarers” from which these examples are taken, "In reading these brief paragraphs one should remember that, when on tour in search of MASTS, Baba is almost always incognito, and that when a MAST bears witness to Baba's spiritual greatness, he often does so without having any external means of knowing who Baba is; those (who do know Baba externally) have reputations as MASTS or saints quite independent of their contact or relationship to Baba, and this, I believe, adds greatly to the value of what they say.”

 

AGHORI BABA, a Sixth Plane Mast of Simla, August, 1946, said to a disciple, pointing to Baba, "You will see what will come to pass, and one day you will know who he (Baba) really is."

CHATTI BABA, the Sixth Plane Mast of Negapatam, one of the "five favorites," said in June, 1940: "There will be much trouble and privation, and many will die of starvation, but Baba will assuage the suffering of the world." In March, 1941, in Quetta, he said: "There will be so great a calamity in the world that no one can imagine it, even brother will kill brother and there will be great tribulation; then all the world will think of my big brother (Baba); at that time Baba will draw aside the veil, and all will pay obeisance to him." In June or July, 1941, he told Krishna, who was in a bad mood at the time, "You want to leave, don't you, but what's the good of it; all the world is in Baba's power, so where will you go to?
