The month preceding Guru Poornima is seen as very significant in the Yogic tradition, as this is when the Adiyogi, Shiva opened up his attention to the Sapta Rishis, the first seven disciples of yoga. Thus, this month is seen as the best time to receive the Grace of the Guru. In a Darshan from July 3rd, 2011 at the Isha Yoga Center, India, Sadhguru speaks in depth about this significant event.
