Do you refer both to the PDF output and the LyX-internal display? I understand 
that the display in the LyX view is broken, but I do not understand why the 
PDF output should be, as long as the LaTeX source preview is correct. 
Did you use


in the preamble, while having "Use non-TeX fonts" checked and having selected 
_no_ particular font from the dropdown boxes?
This setting seems to work for me. However, I cannot read Devanagari, so I 
cannot really judge whether the output is correct.

As far as the LyX view is concerned, the problem comes from the fact that we 
paint character by character, which breaks ligatures. As far as I can see, the 
situation improves if you put the following line in your preferences file in 
~/.lyx (if you do not have a "preferences" file, do an arbitrary change in 
Tools > Preferences, and it will be generated):

\force_paint_single_char false

You also might need to uncheck "Spellcheck continuously" in Tools > 
Preferences > Language Settings > Spellchecker.

This workaround probably has some disadvantages (else we would not force this 
by default), but I don't remember which.
