Samayas essentially consist of outwardly, maintaining harmonious relationship with the vajra master and one's Dharma friends and, inwardly, not straying from the continuity of the practice.

general, special, and supreme samayas; [detailed expl., Light of Wisdom, Vol. 2, page 148]. Furthermore: To summarize the general, special, and supreme samayas: the general samayas are the trainings of individual liberation, bodhisattvas, and Mantra, which should be guarded as one's heart. The special samayas are the common samayas of the five families of Anuttara Mantra as well as the root and branch samayas, which should be guarded as the blood in one's heart. The supreme samayas are twenty described through analogies, such as not breaking the command of the vajra master, and so forth, which should be guarded as carefully as one's life-force.
