I suppose you mean the "devnag" package (there's another package for  
Sanskrit, Wikner's one). If I remember well, the preprocessor is  
named "devnag" so the command should be something like:
	devnag myFile.dn
(you can probably omit the suffix .dn), which will create a  

Incidentally, if you use the "devnag" package you don't need XeTeX,  
simply use the standard TeX. If you use XeTeX you don't need the  
"devnag" package, simply write Sanskrit directly in Devanagari.

Best wishes,
