By seeing his devotion and dedication to socially engaged Buddhism, Lok Koy Vanna composed and sung this song to offer him a respect. Venerable Luon Sovath has seen continuing land evictions and social injustice to poor Cambodian farmers unacceptable in Buddhism. He has sacrificed his time, energy and knowledge to spread out Buddha's teachings to enable that Cambodian Buddhists have practiced Buddhism rightly. He is considered modern hero of Buddhist Sangha in Cambodia.ទឹកភ្នែករាស្រ្តគឺទឹកភែ្នកសង្ឃ - Tears of the people are tears of the monks: By Koy Vanna ព្រះគ្រូលួន សុវត្ថិ - Venerable Luon Sovath: By Koy Vanna

Moving song to support the Engaged Buddhism of Ven. Luon Sovath by Koy Vanna
He moves us, he leads us, he speaks for us and he is our inspiration.
Anti-riot police are used to chain him, to silence him, but he knows better than to turn his mind against the police. He moves forward with his strong message: Lord Buddha teaches me to care, to serve, to tell truth.
Power of non-violence.
Power of music that touches the soul.
We are blessed.
There are more than ONE Loun Sovath. and that is the message of this powerful song.
Listen to it, remember the words, sing it at every gathering, every demonstration, every corner of every street, every village.
