A Grace Disgraced: The Rise And Fall Of Barry Pittard
One of the main objectives in bringing public attention to Ex-Devotees and their smear campaigns against Sathya Sai Baba is the hope that various individuals will come forward with relevant information about them. Over the course of several years, I have received a tremendous amount of email correspondence regarding Ex-Devotees. The most shocking and unexpected correspondence I have received thus far has to deal with the Anti-Sai activist Barry Pittard.

In my possession I have highly credible e-mail correpondence with three unrelated individuals who have disclosed shocking information about Barry Pittard and his alleged perverse indulgences under the guise of spirituality. These three individuals have given me their full names (which I have independently verified) and are not anonymous to me. The individuals in question are professionals who are well known in their communities as honest, law-abiding and respectful folk.

It is also important to point out that I am disclosing this information even though Barry Pittard continually claims that he is in contact with “international” and “top” lawyers from three countries.

Barry Pittard - Alleged Sexual Exploits Under The Guise Of Spirituality
When Barry Pittard was a Sai Devotee, he was known to perform “spiritual healings”, mostly on women, by using “hands on” healing techniques. In a shocking disclosure, a female victim of Barry Pittard (who chooses to remain publicly anonymous) emailed me and confirmed to me that she was one of several victims who was molested under the pretext of “spiritual healing”. The lady in question told me she was aware of other women who were similarly taken advantage of by Barry Pittard.

A noted psychologist (who chooses to remain publicly anonymous) also emailed me and confirmed to me that one of his/her patients claimed she was touched sexually and inappropriately by Barry Pittard during a hands-on healing session. The alleged incident of impropriety occurred when Barry Pittard was still a Sai Devotee.

A person who knew Barry Pittard well (who chooses to remain publicy anonymous) related to me that he/she was informed that Barry Pittard was thrown out of the ashram for sleeping naked on the round-house roofs and even invited various women to sleep on the round-house roofs with him.

Interesting enough, Barry Pittard fully acknowledged that he was thrown out of Sathya Sai Baba’s ashram in 1982. Barry Pittard said about Donna (an Australian Sai devotee):
“In July 1982, acting only out of care for her (and indeed for all who may hear such stories), the moment I passed on the Australian woman’s concerns - who in great anxiety had sought me out for advice as having lived at the SSB ashrams extensively - to two of Sathya Sai Baba’s top leaders Howard Murphett (Australia) and Richard Bayer (USA) about allegations of his homosexuality, I was called up to the office day after day by the Puttaparthi ashram manager, Kutumb Rao, a retired High Court Judge, confronted with patently ridiculous accusations, and on the forth day told ‘Swami has asked that you be sent out, and never return.’ (One of the accusations was: ‘You were seen in the ashram talking to a woman.’ It can only have been the Australian woman who came up to me in distress).”

Notice how Barry Pittard said one of the accusations was...” (indicating there were other accusations).

Needless to say, Donna (the Australian women in question) was still a very visible Sai Devotee upto the year 2000 at Prashanti Nilayam (almost 18 years after Barry Pittard’s alleged encounter with her) and was obviously completely unfazed by the allegations against Sathya Sai Baba.

As a matter of fact, Donna once joined a friend and me at our table at a restaurant (because the restaurant was full and there were no other available seats except at our table) and we had a long chat about Sathya Sai Baba. Never once did Donna allude to anything negative against Sathya Sai Baba (although she was very critical and extremely negative about various Ashram officials). Donna had nothing but praise and devotion for Sathya Sai Baba and made a few oddball comments about being one of Sai Baba’s “ranis” or “shaktis”.

Donna was an extremely beautiful woman and it is very peculiar that Barry Pittard would have made her acquaintance when she was not allowed inside the ashram (because she attempted to chase down Sai Baba during darshan) and could have only been contacted outside the ashram (not “inside” the ashram as alleged by Kutumb Rao). The only reason Donna talked to us that night was because she was seated at our table. Donna was a complete loner, kept to herself and did not even associate with other women. Every now and then, Donna could be seen screaming at the seva dals at the front gate, clamoring for admission and crying about how Sathya Sai Baba was God and how they had no right to deprive her of his darshan.

Barry Pittard Fathered A Son At 58/59 While Still A Sai Devotee
Further strenghtening the case that Barry Pittard was a sexually active senior with a lustful infatuation for young flesh, is the fact that he fathered a son with a 20/21 year old when he was 58/59 years old (old enough to be her Grand Father). Barry Pittard fathered his son with the 20/21 year old when he was still a Sai Devotee and even named his son after Sathya Sai Baba. After Barry Pittard’s defection from Sai Baba, he publicly lied on a QuickTopic forum when he claimed he was married to the mother of his child. Needless to say, he was never married to her and one is left to wonder why Barry Pittard would publicly make that claim when it was patently false.

Barry Pittard’s Endorsement Of & Association With Sanjay Dadlani
Barry Pittard is also a staunch promoter of Sanjay Dadlani and saw absolutely nothing wrong with Sanjay Dadlani’s homosexual-fantasizing slurs, perverted Jesus-sex fetish and deviant boot-sex fetish. Sanjay Dadlani secretly stalked innocent women at Middlesex University (calling them “bitches” and “sluts”, saying “they want it”, calling Mothers “MILFs”, photographing females and teenagers up their dresses and under tables and published these photos on his streetbitches blog). This is the type of person that Barry Pittard staunchly promotes, links to and endorses.

Sanjay Dadlani even posted on the QuickTopic Forum (using multiple fake names, including female names) and made disgusting posts under the name “Marquis de Sade” about a large penis for anal sex, a feces-covered anus, bestiality, people vomiting into each other’s mouths and a Priest ejaculating on the face of a little girl as related by her brother. Sanjay even posted under the name “kick his head in” and said that someone should murder Sathya Sai Baba (of course, this is the same guy who rejoiced when a Sai Baba temple was bombed). Of Sanjay Dadlani, Barry Pittard said, “May those, who are so much older, learn from his example!”

Barry Pittard - A Grace Disgraced - In Conclusion
Therefore, I have received three separate accounts from unrelated individuals about Barry Pittard that cast a serious shadow of doubt on his self-laudatory claims to being credible, moral, ethical and honest. Although I do not like to disseminate stories where the accusers choose to remain publicly anonymous, I decided there can be no harm in following Barry Pittard’s example and in his footsteps as he often makes his arguments against Sathya Sai Baba and Sai Devotees based on “confidential”, “secret” and “anonymous” accounts. It is also my hope that other victims of Barry Pittard will come forward with their accounts and further expose him for his pseudo-morality and alleged exploitations of young women under the guise of “spiritual healing”.

Ironically, although Barry Pittard passed himself off as a spiritual healer for many years, he now lives on a disability pension in Australia (apparently, unable to heal himself). The reason for his disability pension is a fanatically guarded secret. Since I was told in yet another email that Barry Pittard saw a psychologist on the Sunshine Coast, his disability pension may actually be due to psychiatric reasons (which might explain his powerful obsessions with sex, pedophilia and Sai Baba). If this is true, I am certain Barry Pittard will say Sathya Sai Baba is to blame.

As Sai Isa's legal guardian & as a widely self-solicited public figure in the Sai Baba arena, Barry Pittard has knowingly, purposely and recklessly interjected Sai Isa's face and name into the Sai Controversy. Shame on Barry Pittard!

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.
