Sathya Sai Baba Critic Turned Psychic Medium Exposed For Fraud

Sathya Sai Baba Critic Turned Psychic Medium Exposed For Fraud

The following admission came from an e-mail that Sai Baba critic Conny Larsson personally sent to Robert Priddy (which was forwarded to Kevin R.D. Shepherd; a caustic critic and defamer of Sathya Sai Baba) in which Conny Larsson explicitly DENIED that he is a psychic, medium, channeler and/or clairvoyant.
Conny Larsson: “I could keep on interpreting the texts for hours, and in that sense people sometimes make their own opinion that I’m channelling, but in fact it is only me speaking out what is in my own intuitional knowledge.”
(Kevin R.D. Shepherd: This quote appeared in an email to myself from ex-devotee Robert Priddy dated December 2008.)

Kevin R.D. Shepherd: “The same qualifying source also relayed that Larsson has denied being clairvoyant, clairaudient, or telepathic.” (View Screencap Reference)

Therefore, Conny Larsson’s explicit DENIAL of being a psychic, medium, channeler or clairvoyant is now a documented, substantiated and irrefutable fact supported by an email sent to Robert Priddy (and viewed by Kevin R.D. Shepherd) by Conny Larsson himself. Since Robert Priddy is a known defender, supporter and associate of Conny Larsson, this information is a first-hand source that cannot be considered biased, distorted or irrelevant.

Needless to say, Moreno wrote an extensive article fully documenting and fully exposing Conny Larsson’s pervasive Trance Channel & Psychic Medium claims in an article entitled Kevin Shepherd & Psychic Medium Conny Larsson.

It is an irrefutable fact that Conny Larsson widely solicited himself as a Trance Channel & Psychic Medium on numerous New Age websites, including his own domains! The most damning evidence against Conny Larsson was published by an independent National Swedish Newspaper (Norrlandska Socialdemokraten) that wrote an article about Conny Larsson entitled “Medium Draws Full House” (Swedish: “Medium Drog Fullt Hus”) in which it was published (with Conny Larsson’s knowledge) that:

Norrlandska Socialdemokraten Published That Conny Larsson Was A Psychic Medium

Norrlandska Socialdemokraten Published That Conny Larsson Was A Psychic Medium

  1. Conny Larsson personally claimed he is a psychic trance medium.
  2. Conny Larsson performs spirit seances.
  3. Conny Larsson personally talked about “protective spirits” on the Astral Realms and claimed he was protected by them.
  4. Conny Larsson went into a trance and channeled the dead dog of a woman in the audience, claiming the dog still barks and stands at her house.
  5. Conny Larsson channeled an astral message for Gun Isaxon (a Communist party leader in Sweden) from her deceased father, warning of health problems and not to take any office.
  6. Conny Larsson gave a demonstration of aura cleansing on an elderly woman in the audience by using a crystal pendulum.
  7. Conny Larsson claimed that body piercings affect acupuncture and meridian points and are harmful on the “cellular level”.
  8. Conny Larsson claimed he has 10,000 devotees / students in Sweden and around the world.
  9. Conny Larsson attracted “large numbers” of women (judging from the picture in the article, 100% were women).
  10. Many people remember Conny Larsson as the clown “Beppo”.
  11. Conny Larsson claimed that “Words have power. Together we can bring peace and love.”
  12. Conny Larsson warned his audience about “charlatans” who charge money for their services. Nevertheless, participants paid 100 kronor (US $14) as an entry fee (the article claimed over a hundred women were present, meaning that Conny Larsson grossed US $1,400+ just on admission fees). The weekend meditation fee is 400 kronor (US $58) and individual psychic healing sessions are 500 kronor (US $72). The article also claimed that over 400 people were learning meditation from Conny Larsson (meaning that he grossed US $23,200+ on his meditation classes alone).
  13. Conny Larsson also sold books and CDs about himself at the lecture (notice the money-making trend?).

After promoting himself since the year 2000 as a Vedic Master, Meditation Master, Mantra Acharya, Aura Cleanser, Chakra Aligner, Crystal Power Promoter, New Age Adept, Psychic Medium and Trance Channel for Maharishi Vyasa, Conny Larsson sent an email to Robert Priddy in December 2008 stating he is NOT (and never has been) a Psychic Medium or Trance Channel! Therefore, Conny Larsson’s previous claims about being a Psychic Medium and Trance Channel are entirely FALSE, FABRICATED and FRAUDULENT! Thank you Mr. Conny Larsson for coming clean and acknowledging your deceit, deception and fraudulence after a gap of eight years.

Conny Larsson should publicly recant and publish a statement on his official domains stating he is NOT (and never has been) a psychic, medium, channeler and/or clairvoyant and that his former claims of such were not true. Conny Larsson should stop hiding behind private emails and should vindicate his so-called dedication to the “truth” by coming clean in the open (just as he demands of Sathya Sai Baba, Sai Devotees and Pro-Sai Activists).

Robert Priddy believes that psychics, mediums and channelers are “absurd charlatans”. Obviously, Conny Larsson is no exception. Robert Priddy’s condemnation is also directed to all of the alleged psychics, mediums and channelers that Conny Larsson promotes, endorses and associates himself with on his and domains.

Nice friend you got there, Mr. Conny Larsson!

These are the laughable fools who are attempting to “expose” Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba.


Sathya Sai Baba, Barry Pittard, Robert Priddy And Conny Larsson

Sathya Sai Baba, Barry Pittard, Robert Priddy And Conny Larsson

In an amusing turn of events, Barry Pittard and Robert Priddy (two of the main spokespersons for the Anti-Sai Movement) are widely soliciting Conny Larsson (an ex-devotee of the Indian Guru Sathya Sai Baba) on their Anti-Sai WordPress Blogs.

On their Anti-Sai WordPress Blogs, Barry Pittard and Robert Priddy (who often side with Indian rationalists, skeptics and atheists like Premanand, Edamaruku, Narasimhaiah, etc.) made numerous condescending slurs and defamations against gurus, India, Indians and Hinduism. Despite Pittard and Priddy’s alleged rationalism and skepticism, they are now citing Conny Larsson as a highly credible and noteworthy voice against Sathya Sai Baba and Sai Devotees.

Barry Pittard and Robert Priddy consistently ignore and refuse to discuss Conny Larsson’s cult-like development into a New Age psychic trance medium and prophet.

As a matter of fact, Conny Larsson is alleged to be:

  1. An internationally renown psychic trance medium for the spirit of Vyasa (Refs: 0102).
  2. An internationally renown psychic who can contact dead people, see dead people and hear dead people’s voices in his head (Refs: 010203).
  3. An internationally renown psychic trance healer (Refs: 010203).
  4. And pet psychic who can contact the spirits of deceased pets (Ref).
  5. A yoga instructor (an internet claim).
  6. A person who conducts (and charges for) private trance healing sessions in which a Spirit Guide helps him to diagnose problems with his clients (Ref).
  7. A meditation master (Ref).
  8. A person who teaches others (and charges for) a nine-step meditation program in which students advance from lower steps to higher ones using the TM (Transcendental Meditation) technique that he learned from Maharishi Mahesh Yogi (Ref).
  9. A Vedic mantra acharya (Refs: 0102).
  10. A person who charges people money to diagnose their illnesses and diseases by using a crystal pendulum (Ref).
  11. A person who teaches people how to use crystal pendulums (Ref).
  12. A person who charges people money to unblock their chakras (Ref).
  13. A person who teaches people how to “diagnose” blockages in auras (Ref).
  14. A person who claims that body piercing affect acupuncture and meridian points and are harmful on the “cellular level” (Ref).
  15. A post-Sai Baba disciple of Shankaracharya Swami Brahmananda Saraswati (Ref).
  16. A person who claims to have 10,000 devotees / students (Ref).
  17. A person who conducts trance healing “seances” (Ref).
  18. A person who is on the Swedish board for Neal Donald Walsh’s “Humanity Team”. Neal Donald Walsh has written and published many books with his alleged and inspired “conversations with God” (Ref).
  19. A former professional actor in Sweden popularly remembered as the clown “Beppo” (wouldn’t those acting skills come in handy for a convincing portrayal of oneself as a psychic medium?).
  20. A psychotherapist (presenting himself as an authority figure who understands human emotions and thought-processes and thereby may influence and manipulate others into believing his psychic claims).
  21. A person who warns his audience against “charlatans” who charge large sums of money although he typically grosses US $1,400 in admission fees only and charges US $72 (per person) for individual psychic readings and US $58 (per person) for weekend meditation sessions (Ref).
  22. A person who adamantly refuses to submit himself to scientific observation or testing for confirmation of his alleged psychic abilities.

Conny Larsson – ‘Lunatic Fringe’ In The Anti-Sai Movement:

About the Ramayana, Barry Pittard and Robert Priddy 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 and Robert Priddy have bashed and trashed one of their 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 and Robert Priddy!

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, not even one Ex-Devotee has said even one word about Conny Larsson’s self-promotion as a guru, yoga instructor, chakras / kundalini instructor, meditation teacher, pet psychic, mantra acharya, psychic healer, trance channeler, medium, Vedic authority, true-believer and disciple of Shankaracharya Swami Brahmananda Saraswati. Amusingly, Robert Priddy has 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 Ex-Devotees typically cite against Sathya Sai Baba. Next, Barry Pittard and Robert Priddy will probably have Conny Larsson channel the spirit of Vyasa so they can obtain a “credible” and “convincing testimony” from him and use it on their Anti-Sai websites as “irrefutable proof” that even the immortal Vyasa had something negative to say about Sathya Sai Baba.
