Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh. There is a Paath that you do before you leave home and go out anywhere, Its very short. When recite this Paath you will be safe when you are out and wont be in any danger. Does anyone know the name of this Paath and what you have to recite? I believe it starts off "Aad Aaminay, Jugaad Aminay, Satguru Aaminay..." I cannot remember the rest though, so please write the full recitation for me please. Thanks.

But I can read Gurmukhi :) I was thinking or buying "Punjabi Guru" http://www.sikhlink.net/store/ItemDetails.asp?ItemID=PUN-SFT-387

Or cybergiani http://www.sonanet.com/

Anyone tried ? Is it worth it? Which one should I get?

So far the only book I've found found on the language of Gurbani is The Sacred Language of the Sikhs by Christopher Shackle (he's also compiled a Guru Nanak Glossary with all the words used in Guru Nanak Dev jee's bani). You can find it on amazon most of the time. It's an academic textbook, so you need to know something about basic grammar terms and also know how to read Gurmukhi beforehand.
