No, but they are related.

We could say that anāgata (future) rupa are based on “rupa upadanakkhanda.”

  • An analogy: Someone spends time making a plan for a house (“rupa upadanakkhanda“) and ends up with a plan (blueprint). That blueprint is like anāgata (future) rupa. Of course, the blueprint will keep changing as that person keeps making new efforts with abhisankhara.
