Back around 800, the lay bodhisattva Peixiu wrote an excellent work on Bodhicitta.

I am sure that 'Payshoo' is far from correct, so please give me a good pronunciation of his name.

Location: Budapest
With IPA: pʰei-ɕjoʊ
Further info here: Rules given in terms of English pronunciation

Note, however, that this is modern Mandarin. Pronunciation changed a lot and there are several dialects in China. Using Japanese (Hai-kyuu) or Korean (Pay-hyu) can be actually closer to the original.
