Running a stored procedure in context with the master database

I have a stored procedure "Test" running in context with say, the db1 database. I want the stored procedure to run in context with the master database - not db1. How is this done?

To access objects in the master database, you can specify the three part name for the objects eg: master.dbo.someobject from a proc in any database.
