another activity to its operation.

Psalms 150: 1-6 says
1: Praise ye the LORD.
Praise God in his sanctuary:
praise him in the firmament of his power.
2: Praise him for his mighty acts:
praise him according to his excellent greatness.
3: Praise him with the sound of the trumpet:
praise him with the psaltery and harp.
4: Praise him with the timbrel and dance:
praise him with stringed instruments and organs.
5: Praise him upon the loud cymbals:
praise him upon the high sounding cymbals.
6: Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD.

is to praise HIM and to uphold the true faith of the Universal
Syriac Orthodox Church, handed over to us by our forefathers, as
well as to make a platform for all Syriac Orthodox Christians

Orthodox Church worship. Our vision is to take "shubho"
to new heights and to be the premier broadcasting station of its
kind on internet.
