The “Quiet Mind” is another name for ‘Peace’, which is another name for the actualisation of ‘Nirvāṇa’, which is another name for cessation of lust, aversion and ignorance… which is… which is… which is…

I quite like the expression though because I think it describes better than ‘Peace’ the actual experience (at least better for the ordinary mind, to who ‘Peace’ might sound a bit generic and unreal): there is still an ‘awareness’, which is a lot more responsive than in the “neither-perception-nor-non-perception” jhāna but its responsiveness does not come at the cost of agitation, worry, scheming, etc.
