Hello Instructors, My Query- is it right to create an Udemy course on self realization..? I'm 18 and I've discovered the short journey of self realization.. What Buddha, Jesus, Krishna, and other great sages knew and all religion from it's origin trying to provide!

Hi @ShubhamKumar ,
Welcome to Udemy. My view on creating Udemy courses is to make sure it is something you know about, something you know you can answer students questions on. Obviously, from time to time people ask questions you might have to research, but generally you want to have much more knowledge of the subject than what you are teaching.
I feel that it is important to be able to state what makes you an expert/gives you authority on the subject, why should people learn from you?
It is also important to be teaching because you want to teach what you are teaching, rather than because you want to make money. That doesn't mean you don't want to make money, but the money isn't guaranteed whereas the teaching is, so it is better to focus on the fact you want to share knowledge you have to share.
I look at things as what is the worst-case scenario? Here, that would likely be that no-one takes your course, or that people give it a low rating. If your course has good structure, good audio, video, lighting and delivers what it says it will deliver then it should do fine. If you were concerned about your age in relation to what you are teaching then I would bring this up in the description and introduction, stating why you feel students should learn from you and make your introduction and free lectures really count.
All the best
