Whatever is left over from the archives of the old Raganuga.Com forums after most of the substantial threads were moved to the relevant areas of the main forums.

1. When one loves Radha more than Krishna, can one also worship her instead of him in Raganuga Sadhana?
2. It is said that Krishna has many lovers as there are many Gopis.
Has then Radha also many lovers as there are many male Gopas?

Answering your questions in reverse order:
2/ Sri Radha is married and is very chaste, but Sri Krishna has such unearthly power of attraction (He overpowers even the powerful God of Love) that He draws even the chaste Gopis to him. It is a great Mystery. He offers His attractive power as an aid to all lost souls who wish to transcend the miseries of this world. Love of God was never before so easy!
1/ Having been drawn out of her chaste life to Sri Krishna, Radha thinks of him constantly, always wants His company. There are some devotees who favour Radha more than Krishna, but a true worshipper of Radha serves Her wishes, and so tries to help Her be with Her Beloved.
Hoping this helps,

Well spoken, beautifully expressed. A fascinating sequence.
