The Wayfarers is the only book of its kind. It chronicles in the finest detail what was a major part of spiritual master, Meher Baba's work during his lifetime: contacting hundreds of those who are called "masts" in the East, spiritually advanced souls so enthralled with their yearning for union with God that they lose touch with the ordinary world. This new edition offers spectacular digitally reproduced photographs of the masts, as well as a separate full color map of India, and a black and white map showing the routes Meher Baba traveled to locate the masts.

Dr. William Donkin was born in England in 1911. He was highly educated, receiving his qualification as a doctor in 1939.
His youthful love of adventure proved to be great preparation for his part in Meher Baba's search for those who are called "masts" in the East, spiritually advanced souls intoxicated by God's love. At the age of twenty Donkin crossed the Sahara Desert in the hottest months, covering 1400 miles by camel and the last 300 by horseback. As a member of the Alpine Club in London, he went mountain climbing in the Alps, Norway; High Atlas, Corsica.
He was a medical student when he first met his spiritual master, Meher Baba in London, 1933, but as soon as he qualified as a doctor in 1939 he joined Baba in India. He served as a medical officer in the Army from 1941-1946.
With characteristic modesty, Dr. Donkin relates when it was suggested to Baba that somebody record his work with the masts, "But I've never written a book in my life," I told him. "Never mind," said Baba, "you do it." "So I did it, my aim being only to try to make a faithful record of Baba's work with masts and others; his external and visible work, that is. His real inner work he would just not tell us about - but then, why should he?"
Dr. Donkin was one of those chosen to accompany Meher Baba on the New Life, a long period of wandering through India. He died in India in 1970.

".documents in great detail Meher Baba's numerous contacts with masts throughout Southern Asia (mostly Iran, India, and what is today Pakistan). The introduction, written by Meher Baba, explains their unique state and their outward characteristics. Meher Baba carefully distinguishes the mast state from madness, saying that in the case of the mad person mind is sped up, while in the case of the mast it is slowed down. Meher Baba also made a Sufi analogy (reflecting the poetry of Hafiz) to the drunkenness of one intoxicated with wine, but in this case the wine is the love of God. Meher Baba contacted hundreds of masts all over India, Pakistan, and Iran, saying that he was freeing them from enchantment and helping them to continue on the spiritual path and to be of inward service to humanity."
