said:" We're wise fools." Yes, we "Fan Families"
are all the "wise fools" who threw away the good salary, and
went to Crownstone Garden with simple luggage and little money.
We build the wooden pavilions, wooden houses, plant some vegetable and many kinds of
fruits to lead a simple and comfortable life. Of course, we like this kind of life.
However, we don't escape from this world. On the contrary, we make efforts towards the
same goal very positively and we set up "Fan Universal Net" to deliver the
universal news for all over the world. We hope we can devote some of our experience as
being spiritual practitioners to you.
It's not so easy to become one of our families. At first, our parents didn't understand
why we gave up the good salary and moved to the mountain. However, when they went to
Crownstone Garden and lived with us, they knew how happy it was to live in Crownstone,
such like a paradise! So they join us, cook their best dishes, do the house working,
cultivate the farm and plant the vegetables?etc. We all become a
big and happy family after all.
we're all young people, we don't care the pressure from this world.
Everyone here practices their spirits very hard for the disciplines
here are very serious. Anyone who wants to become one of our members
has to pass many tests to be qualified to become one member in Crownstone
Here, DaDa takes herself as an example to teach us to learn "how to practice our
spirits by ourselves". For example, at the beginning when we joined Fan Families, all
of our trash inside our heart threw away very fast. It's DaDa's incredible power to make
it happen. Later on, by some chances DaDa told us when we saw anything undone, we had to
do it immediately. That is "practice spirits by yourself". We have a lot of
examples here. We can learn a lot of things and don't have to be afraid there's nothing to
learn when you live here!
Besides, we have a "devil leader"Ama Shiu. What he asks for everyone is so serious, especially
to DaDa. Though he's so serious, he loves everyone. At beginning, maybe you won't be used
to his way to teach us; however, when we grew up, we thank him very much.
are not only the ten members and our parents in Fan Families but also
a lot of animals such as Ponchi (squirrel), little Green (snake), little
Flower (snake), DuDu (little lizard), little chicken, little butterfly
and many kinds of angel birds. They all belong to our families.
One day, we all families went to Dibun hot spring to go swimming. Before we went out,
there was a friend calling us and I told him:" We would go out later." He
said:" Then there's no one at home." I told him:" Little Green and little
Flower were home."
the evening when we came back and opened the door, we saw little Green
stayed in the door side. We told little Green:" You're doing a
good job." What's more, little Green's child--"little little
Green" was also with spirituality. On Aug. 8th, we celebrated the
anniversary for Fan Universal Net. She also attached on one bamboo and
bent her soft body to form the shape of "8" to celebrate with
There're also big animals in Crownstone Garden, especially the big Nono (the giant snake).
When you meet her, you won't be afraid of her for she always crawls very peacefully and
lovely. I love Crownstone Garden and every living creature here. Fan Families belong to
everyone and all human beings. Welcome to join our universal family.
