The death of the former King Norodom Sihanouk on October 15th 2012 was a great loss for Cambodia. The royal government announced 7 days of mourning from October 17th to October 23rd. People came to the palace from every corner of Cambodia to pay their respect. Mourners, like monks and nuns, shaved their hair as offerings. The King himself was buddhist and so his funeral was infused with buddhist practices that extended to monks, nuns and mourners alike. On October 20th 2012 over 5,000 Buddhist monks united in front of the palace for meditation and chanting and the palace became a sacred place. “Unity” by Kim Hak covers an exciting moment where Cambodians unite to mourn for the death of King Norodom Sihanouk.
