Eknathji elaborates above by giving detail explanation, that this faith in man is of two types: one is intellectual faith and the other is practical or real faith. A person may have an intellectual grasp of the immortality of soul. But whether the principle has been imbibed deep enough in his heart and whether the principle has been imbibed deep enough in his heart and whether it is reflected in his day to day life, is the question.
Means if a man does not rise to the occasion and is not prepared to die for the most noble and ideal value in his life, being afraid of death, it clearly indicates that all his glib talk about the immortality of the soul and the nobility of life's mission and fulfilling life's goal at any cost, signifies nothing. Intellectual faith makes man a sheep, while real faith turns him into a lion.
Have real faith, be lions and fight for the life's noble and sacred mission.
