The tradition of convent for filial piety of Khmer people in Soc Trang is a long-standing tradition, demonstrating cultural values and education among the Khmer ethnic community. However, according to the changing circumstances of the society, the practice is no longer considered as important as before. This paper describes the practice and analyzes some of the causes for the decline in the number of monks: education in the temple for the intellectual needs of the Khmer youth; The impact of the market economy and the development of information technology; The early involvement of the Khmer youth due to shrinking agricultural land; and conversion activities of the Khmer Theravada Buddhist followers.
