What on earth is "mester"?  Tell us where you found this word.

 

"Master" exists.  It's seldom used, but it's used.  The dog's master is the owner of the dog.  (This is probably the most common meaning.)  A master can be the top official of a lodge (a Masonic lodge, for example), the captain of a ship, the top official of a port (harbor master), etc.
