With assistance from Ron Jenkins and the Web Archive, a theatre professor at Wesleyan College, the Balinese are leading the globe as the very first culture to get their whole literature go on the web.
The writings contain normal texts to sacred records on faith, holy conventions, rites, family genealogies, regulation codes, pacts on medication (usadha), artworks and structures, calendars, pro se, poems and also magic. The approximated 50,000 lontars are held by members of the Puri (palace) household and large priests to normal families. Some are attentively kept as family traditions although some are made in grimy and dusty corners of homes. Digitizing the lontars salvages the files from becoming ruined by bugs or humidity, as several already have and makes them accessible to pupils and scholars.
Not many Balinese have really read any lontar because of the viewpoint that’s it sacrilegious and also language barriers. Fortyone of said performances have now been uploaded to the Web Archive.
