Modi also gave an online link of the summary of Bhagwat's address.
He congratulated all RSS workers on the organisation's foundation day.
In an address that was telecast live on national broadcaster Doordarshan, Bhagwat pressed for a complete ban on cow slaughter and meat export and urged people to stop buying Chinese goods.
He also said "jehadi" activities were increasing in Kerala and Tamil Nadu and alleged that illegal immigration from Bangladesh into the states of West Bengal, Assam and Bihar will endanger the life of "Hindu society" there.
The RSS chief patted the Modi government for initiatives on national security, economy and international relations in a short period of four months.
Speaking at the customary function on Dusshera which coincides with 89th foundation day of his organisation, he said positive signs are emanating that give people the hope that India is emerging stronger on the international stage.
