If Kali steps on Shiva with her right foot and holds the sword in her left hand, she is considered to be the form The Dakshina Kali.


If the Kali steps out with the left foot and holds the sword in her right hand, she is the terrible form of Mother, The Smashan Kali of the cremation ground. She is worshiped by tantrics, the followers of Tantra, who believe that one's spiritual discipline practiced in a smashan (cremation ground) brings success quickly.
