The name was inspired by a Buddhist quote
"Be a lamp unto yourself." When Buddha was dying, his followers asked him how to continue their practice after he was gone. He advised them to look inward for guidance.
Be a lamp unto yourself.
Be a refuge to yourself.
Hold fast to Truth as a lamp.
Hold fast to the truth as a refuge.
Look not for a refuge in anyone beside yourself.
Those who are a lamp unto themselves
And betake themselves to no external refuge,
But hold fast to the Truth as their lamp,
And hold fast to the Truth as their refuge,
They shall reach the topmost height.
