Doshas aren't stress, in Maharishi's eyes, as far as I know. Samskaras are stress.
The term doṣa literally means "contamination" but I don't think that Maharishi ever used it in that sense. That is more a Buddhist thing to use doṣa to refer to lust, etc..

Lust, Anger, Greed to name a few, (the doshas). These, are the sleeping elephants MMY used to talk about in the early days, IMHO.
