The data collection method was literature studies which aimed at analyzing several sources of old Javanese scripts, Serat Dharmasonya Serat Wedhatama, text of KGPAA Mangkunegara IV, Serat Tjemporet written by R. Ng. Ranggawarsito and some other studies on the life world of the Javanese palace in Surakarta 1830-1939 , the work of Soeratman Darsiti. Thus, the present text of the Dharmasonya was read through seeing the historical life of the Islamic religion.
