278. மனத்தது மாசாக மாண்டார்நீ ராடி
மறைந்தொழுகு மாந்தர் பலர்.
Translation: Many wash in hollowed waters, living lives of hidden shame; Foul in heart, yet high upraised of men in virtuous fame.
Explanation: There are many men of masked conduct, who perform their ablutions, and (make a show) of greatness, while their mind is defiled (with guilt).
