Pittard's Psychic Friend Conny Larsson

On Conny Larsson’s official website at, it is now claimed he is a psychic “transchannel” for the immortal sage, rishi & chiranjeevin Vyasa:

Relevant Text Extract:
Conny Larsson, Sweden/Cyprus - Founder of Vedic Mantra Meditation school in Europe. - Author and psychotherapist. Transchannel for ‘Vyaasa, the first Rishi’ During the Master Class Conny guided participants in the knowledge of the Vedic Mantra systems with regard to the 7 chakras of the nervous system. As Vyaasa he channeled 4000 year old knowledge for the group as a whole and at times for us as individuals. He also took us through processes to expand our levels of consciousness.”

Relevant Text Extract:
“Meeting for the Masters’ Class in Cypress was truly inspiring and an excellent example of how to spend a meaningful holiday. We were a group of teachers from several different countries, each bringing to the class an area of acquired knowledge and experience...Conny spoke about the seven different states of consciousness and also did some trance channeling of Vyaasa, ‘the first Rishi, or Seer’. That, for sure was an extra bonus at the seminar...I really look forward to the next event of this kind that Conny organises! Judith Bourque, Holistic Therapist and Independent Filmmaker”

Information About Vyasa Dev:
Vyasa is considered to be an incarnation of Lord Vishnu and was the scribe for the Yoga Bhashya, Mahabharata, Puranas and Vedas. Vyasa Deva is also considered to be one of eight chiranjeevins (i.e., immortals) who is still in existence according to general Hindu belief. The eight chiranjeevins are:

  1. Ashwathama (a man cursed to immortality and eternal suffering without love from anybody for his role in the murder of the five sons of the Pandavas and his attempted murder of Arjuna’s grandson)

  2. Hanuman (the monkey god servitor to Lord Rama)

  3. Kripacharya (a teacher of the princes in the Mahabharata)

  4. Mahabali (a righteous demon king who conquered heaven, earth, and the underworld, but was forced to give it back by Vamana)

  5. Markandeya (a great rishi)

  6. Parashurama (the ax-wielding avatar of Vishnu)

  7. Vibhishana (Ravana’s brother who was made King of Lanka by Rama)

  8. Vyasa (a sage who narrated the Mahabharata, he was also a sage in the epic)

Conny Larsson - ‘Lunatic Fringe’ In The Anti-Sai Movement:
About the Ramayana, Barry Pittard wrote:
“Nor can any intelligent person make good or relevant sense of it in the modern world – it is just a fantastic, impossible concocted story of the ‘Superman’ kind – with ‘monkey-man’ Hanuman lifting and flying aloft with a whole mountain (so Rama could pick out a herb from it!) or jumping across the sea to Sri Lanka. Come on, how can one be so backward intellectually? This may be o.k. for ignorant peasants, but the thinking world must regard it as sheer delusion!”

Did you get that Mr. Conny Larsson?
“…it is just a fantastic, impossible concocted story of the ‘Superman’ kind…”

“Come on, how can one be so backward intellectually?”

“This may be o.k. for ignorant peasants, but the thinking world must regard it as sheer delusion!”

The reason why this is so amusing is because Conny Larsson is now claiming he is a psychic medium and trance channeler for the spirit of Vyasa, an immortal guru who shares his chiranjeevin status with Hanuman and Vibhishana (from the Ramayana). Therefore, Barry Pittard bashed and trashed one of his own, Conny Larsson, as being one of those “backward intellectually” “ignorant peasants” who believes in “impossible concocted stories of the ‘Superman’ kind”! Even worse, Conny Larsson not only believes in these “concocted” stories, he claims that the spirit of Vyasa is speaking through him in psychic trances! If the stories in the Ramayana, Mahabharata and Srimad Bagavatam are “concocted”, what does that make Conny Larsson? It makes him a con-man, a fraud and a spiritual imposter. Thank you Barry Pittard!

I just love it when Anti-Sai Activists attempt to malign Sathya Sai Baba and Sai Devotees and end up maligning themselves in the process. Needless to say, Barry Pittard adamantly refuses to say even one word about Conny Larsson’s self-promotion as a guru, yoga instructor, chakras / kundalini instructor, meditation teacher, mantra acharya, psychic healer, trance channeler, medium, Vedic authority, true-believer and disciple of Shankaracharya Swami Brahmananda Saraswati. Amusingly, Barry Pittard’s co-conspirator, Robert Priddy, inadvertently dumped Conny Larsson into the same lunatic fringe category that he dumped Sai Devotees, his astrologer son (Kai Nicolai Priddy) and himself into.

If Conny Larsson is a “backward intellectually” “ignorant peasant” who believes in “impossible concocted stories of the ‘Superman’ kind” and part of the “lunatic fringe” seen in religious movements, then why should anyone give credence to his allegations against Sathya Sai Baba?

Yes, this is the type of person that Barry Pittard typically cites against Sathya Sai Baba. Next, Barry Pittard will probably have Conny Larsson channel the spirit of Vyasa so he can obtain a “credible” and “convincing testimony” from him and use it on his Anti-Sai websites as “irrefutable proof” that even the immortal Vyasa had something negative to say about Sathya Sai Baba.
