You must tell Polyglossia what is in Sanskrit. This modified version  
of the original file works by me (with TeX Live 2008):





\setmainfont[]{Gentium Basic}



sanskrit]{Nakula} % this defines a Sanskrit font which Polyglossia  
will use in a Sanskrit environment
\newcommand{\dev}[1]{{\begin{sanskrit}\large #1\end{sanskrit}}} % this  
says that the text enclosed in \dev{} is in Sanskrit





anyaabhilaa.sitaa"suunya.m j~naanakarmaadyanaav.rtam|\\
aanukuulyena k.r.s.naanu"siilana.m bhaktiruttamaa||


\noindent asyaartha.h---anyaabhilaa.saj~naanakarmaadirahitaa
"sriik.r.s.namuddi"syaanukulyena kaayavaa"nmanobhiryaavatii kriyaa saa
bhakti.h|| 1||



The \textwidth=5cm is only to get more hyphenations. Incidentally, you  
don't need to load bidi if your text is in English and Sanskrit.

Best wishes,
