Kali is the Goddess of Death, which you will encounter pretty early in the game. She is represented by a gigantic statue with a bloody altar beneath her. To get this achievement, you will need 16 Favor with Kali, which is gained by sacrificing stunned or dead bodies by placing them on the altar. You can see a list of points here:

I suggest going for this in the Jungle. Try to get sacrifice two stunned Cavemen for 4 points (be careful that they don't un-stun in your arms), then sacrifice the Damsel afterwards.

Another easy tactic to get it is to simply sacrifice two Damsels. This leaves you with less health than you would have with the tactic above, but that might not pose a problem if you are solely going for this achievement, in which case sacrificing two Damsels at the first two Altars you see would be the best option.
DROGTURISTGotta be picky and correct a few things here... The Kapala is completely random and has nothing to do with how many bodies you sacrifice at a given moment, and Kali can show up in any level from level 1-1. Furthermore, live bodies always give you an item while dead bodies most often do not, so dead is definitely not better.

Could also add that the Kapala is an item for re-gaining life by collecting drops of blood as you kill stuff. If 8 drops of blood land on you when you're carrying it, you get 1 life back.

SnapDragonIf this is anything like the PC version, you're both wrong. http://spelunky.wikia.com/wiki/Altar
You get 12 points for a live Damsel, 8 for dead. Various other enemies have lower point values. When you reach 16 points, you get the Kapala, guaranteed. (And when you reach 32 you get 99 bombs!)

RustyFYeah, the above solution is incorrect. Kali follows the same rules as the PC version. See link in previous comment.

Sensei Le RoofA damsel and two stunned yetis is enough to get it in the X360 version. Sorry, but the link won't help you; if it had been true for the X360 version as well I'd only have needed one yeti.
