I still read suttas, although not as much as I once did. I suppose the reason for not reading them as much as before is just that I have read them so much already, and learned so much about what they have to offer, that continued reading has diminished utility.
But I also have to say that I increasingly find the world of the suttas - that is, life seen from the perspective of the Buddha and his circle, set in the conditions of 5th century BCE India - to have less relevance to my own life and its problems than seemed to be the case before. That world is a world of world-renouncing monks, and most of the important lessons are lessons given by monks, to other monks, for the benefit of monks, living a kind of life only a monk can live. All of the other characters are portrayed as sad, inferior, second-rate folks looking in from the outside on a life of peace and detached renunciation they can’t have. And any notion of sacrifice or service to others that doesn’t consist in teaching the techniques of renunciation, separation and absorption is absent.
I don’t think this is an especially helpful perspective for a person like me, and it can only lead to a sense of inferiority, alienation and hopeless dejection, perhaps accompanied by some kind of abject, pathetic monk worship to provide a sense of purpose.
So I’m more and more inclined to look beyond the early tradition, to try to find people with outlooks that have absorbed some of what is best and most universal in the teachings, but combined it with a more integrated, wholesome affirmation of life in the world, struggling with our brothers and sisters to make the best we can of it.
