Funny Stuff from the Therapy Site - Jainism

The Counseling Resource Site had a post about Jainism today that actually made me laugh. I link and quote it in it's entirety. I'm sad there's no counter-response.

I’m curious... How do you justify having and/or using a computer? It’s my understanding that the Aparigraha [Scooter: "non-possesiveness"] principle of Jainism living means non-indulgence in the enjoyment of the amenities and the comforts of life - which are superfluous for the preservation of life. Ie: food, clothes, shelter. Are you allowed to use a computer? - Connect to the world wide web? As long as you don’t ***enjoy*** doing so???
