There are 2 bhava rupas. They are

  1. itthattha bhava rupa and
  2. purisatta bhava rupa.

They are femaleness and maleness. These rupas are realities. But they are known just only through manodvara not through panca dvara. They both are kammaja ekam rupa. That is they are caused by kamma only and no other causes raise their arising.
