In English

I Wayan Mudita Adnyana, born in Tenganan Village, Karangasem, Bali, 16 September 1931. He is an expert in copying ancient lontar, singing kakawin, playing Gender and Selonding gamelan. He learned to copy lontar from I Gusti Bagus Sugriwa from Singaraja in 1943. From a young age he had copied many lontar, including the Bhagawad Gita, Mahabharata, Ramayana, Purusada Santa, Sutasoma, Arjuna Wiwaha, Bomantaka, Gatotkacasraya, and so on.

He also created a wayang sekaa (group) called Dharma Kusuma in 1980.

Copies of the lontar are widely collected by domestic and foreign collectors as well as state officials, including the President of Italy, Sandro Pertini (1983); New Zealand Prime Minister Hellene Clark (1988); President Megawati Soekarno Putri (2001). A copy of his lontar entitled Kakawin Sutasoma was once offered by a foreign collector for hundreds of millions of rupiah, but he did not let it go.
